Boycott of Wine

No, don’t worry, that’s not me (it’s Cider and Prosecco for me this weekend!). I’m talking about Russia boycotting Moldovan wine. My favourite “blog about goings on in Russia” (!) English Russia reports…

Russian government has declared a boycott for wine from Moldova, so they confiscated all the Molodova wine in Moscow and put in one place and then used tractors to destroy it. But tractor is not so perfect in this job so there was left a lot of leftovers which attracted locals for some free wine. Pics and videos are below. Even policemen were interested in bottle or two of some illegal wine.

Russian Boycott of Moldovan Wine

Those crazy Russians… I’d love to taste Moldovan wine, can anyone help me out?

Speaking of Moldova, if you fancy a very funny Moldovan based read try Playing the Moldovans at Tennis by Tony Hawks. No, note the skater Tony Hawk, Tony Hawks the British comedian of Morris Minor & The Majors “Stutter Rap” fame. This has to be one of my favourite books of all time, along with his other best sellers Round Ireland with a Fridge, One Hit Wonderland & A Piano in the Pyrenees.
