  1. So Stoli's given $150k to the so-called Russian Freedom Fund and $300k to LA’s Gay & Lesbian Center—450,000 pieces of silver versus the $75 MILLION Stoli's owner Yuri Schefler spent on his Miami estate; versus the $330 MILLION he spent on his seven-deck yacht with a crew of 52, its own helicopter, two helipads, its own submarine, gymnasium, wine cellar, a indoor saltwater swimming pool, and a room in which it SNOWS; versus his net worth even a decade ago of $850 MILLION. Imagine what it is today—and imagine him laughing all the way to the bank as members of our own
    community can be bought off for so little and others attack other gays for protesting them at all. Even if the Russian law were repealed tomorrow and those Russians who support it woke up, Stolie still DESERVES to be boycotted simply for their shameless lies and distortions about their products—claiming Stoli is entirely made in Latvia when it's actually not or that it's not "Russian vodka" when they've fought in court to call it that—and alleged powerlessness to do more than throw pretty words at us and some lint from Schefler's navel.

  2. The whole Stoli boycott was an uninformed and misguided attempt to punish Russia. The Stoli we know is Latvian and headquartered in Luxembourg. Read the interview here to properly understand. Yury Shefler bought the brand and was later driven out of Russia to Latvia. The Russian government under Putin are making their own version of a "Stoli" but it is not the one marketed worldwide, Yury Shefler' SPI Stoli is. Like I said, an uninformed, misguided, knee-jerk reaction which, when the actual cacts are known, only make those who participated in the boycott look foolish.
