Virginia ABC stores announced Sunday that they will remove seven Russian-sourced vodka brands from their shelves following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
According to a tweet from ABC, the decision was made after Gov. Glenn Youngkin called for "decisive action" in support of Ukraine.
Both companies have decided to stop selling Russian-made products as tensions rise between the countries.
