UK Pub Installs Picture Of Putin In Its Urinal

A pub in the UK has placed a photograph of Vladimir Putin in its urinals.

Staff at Raglan Road Irish Bar in Nottingham are taking a stand against the Russian president over his invasion of Ukraine.

And they have now replaced the photograph of former US president Donald Trump with that of Putin, encouraging their punters to leave their mark.

In a photo posted to the pub's Instagram account, a huge pic of the dictator smiling and waving can be seen across the back of the urinal.

The photo was posted with the caption: "Vladimir Putin in the men's loo."

And it's safe to say that the stunt has gone down well with regulars, with plenty eager to spend a penny during their next visit.

Commenting on the post, one fan said: "I’ll be round. Least I can do."

Another chimed in: "Love it."

A third joked: "Put him in the s****ers too!"

While another added: "Fantastic."

But this isn't the only example of pubs showing solidarity with the people of Ukraine in their brutal war with Russia.

Last month, hundreds of shops and bars in the US and Canada began removing Russian vodka from their shelves.

In Ontario, the Liquor Control Board Of Ontario was ordered to withdraw all Russian products, including Russian Standard Original Vodka, Beluga Noble Russian Vodka and Stoli Vodka.

Ontario Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvy said in a statement: "Ontario joins Canada's allies in condemning the Russian government's act of aggression against the Ukrainian people and we strongly support the federal government's efforts to sanction the Russian government.

"The people of Ontario will always stand against tyranny and oppression."

Numerous videos have also circulated online showing people emptying bottles down the drain and into the sink.

Staff at Evel Pie pizzeria in Las Vegas are trying to raise money for humanitarian aid charities supporting people in Ukraine by asking customers to pay $300 (£228) to have their bottle of Russian vodka poured away.

The restaurant is also selling Ukrainian-made vodka, with '100 percent of the profits going to the International Committee of the Red Cross'.

And Co-op recently became the first UK supermarket to remove Russian vodka from shelves for the 'foreseeable future' following the invasion of Ukraine.

Russian Standard vodka was brought to market in 1998 by billionaire Roustam Tariko, and is one of the best-selling vodkas in the UK.

Co-op said that because Russian Standard is ‘overtly Russian’ and produced in the country they will no longer stock it online or in stores.
