Russia 'creep out'

Vlad Putin isn't that kind of way, so Russia won't be either, but what will that do to vodka sales;
A gay rights organization based in the U.S. has called for a worldwide boycott on Russian vodka in response to the country's new gay propaganda legislation.
Queer Nation's manifest implores people not to buy or drink Russian vodka and also asks bar owners not to serve it in their establishments.
In late June, President Vladimir Putin signed the so-called "gay propaganda" law, which levies fines of 4,000 rubles to one million rubles ($124 to $31,000) for promoting homosexuality among minors.
The law has caused outrage in the international gay community, and a number of LGBT activists have called for a boycott of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Don't forget orange juice.
