Ukrainians call upon boycott of Belarusian goods

16:52, — Europa

Activists are preparing to picket shops which sell Belarusian goods.

It has been stated by participants of the rally held in central Kyiv yesterday, gazeta.ua informs.

The flashmob was opened next to three coffee trucks near the Golden Gate metro station. The day before activists had found out that Russian tea was sold there. We have already covered almost all supermarket networks, and now we are going to reach coffee trucks and McDonalds. Peoples response is mostly positive. When there is some displeasure, passers-by defend us. They persuade that we are right, and support us. And then debate between customers starts, the organniser of the protest Ekateryna Chepura noted.

After boycott of Russian goods, the activists are going to hold flashmobs near kiosks where Belarusian goods are sold. They also promise to boycott Armenian cognacs, as these are the countries which had supported Crimeas annexation.

Most of the passers-by supported the protest. Some of them look around in surprise, but took the leaflets.

We certainly support it. Dont we have enough home goods? Now we tank up only I European and Ukrainian petrol stations. We avoid TNK and Lukoil. We buy Russian cheese, but only manufactured in Ukraine, a passer-by Viktor Mikhajlishin said.

Owners of coffee trucks promised to stop selling Russian goods. Such flash mobs have already been staged in Odessa, Mykolaiv, Kherson, Vinnytsia, Poltava.

We remind that a mass boycott of Russian goods continues after the Russian occupation of Ukraine started. It makes manufacturers look for opportunities to conceal what is the actual country of origin. One of the ways is to change bar code of the goods, as it is the main indicator of the country of origin. Ukrainians clearly know that the first two figures, 46, mean that the goods had been made in Russia.
