CONCORD, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — As Russia continues to invade Ukraine, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu made a statewide decision in solidarity for those under attack.

Saturday morning, Sununu said he signed an Executive Order instructing N.H. Liquor & Wine Outlets to begin removing Russian-made and Russian-branded spirits from store shelves at liquor and wine outlets until further notice.

"New Hampshire stands with the people of Ukraine in their fight for freedom," Sununu said.

Similar moves have been made elsewhere, such as in Ontario, Canada, where officials in the Liquor Control Board of Ontario have been ordered to withdraw all Russian-produced items from stores.

Virginia Senator Louise Lucas asked Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin to "order the removal of all Russian Vodka and any other Russian products from our stores immediately."
