MONTGOMERY, Ala. (EETV) - Monday afternoon, Governor Ivey asked for the removal of Russian liquor from ABC Stores throughout the state.

Governor Kay Ivey stated, "this is a small, but meaningful way to take action and show the people of Ukraine we support them while also firmly stating our opposition to the unnecessary humanitarian crisis Russia has inexcusably created. I encourage all Alabama citizens and businesses to explore ways they can show support for Ukraine and discourage Russia for continuing this unreasonable siege on a neighboring country.”

ABC operates more than 230 liquor stores across the state. Governors of Utah, New Hampshire, Ohio, and other states have made similar orders removing Russian products.
