Ukrainian Women Launch Sex Boycott On Russians

Posted: Updated:

Russia may not be fussed about various US and EU sanctions, or being booted out of the G8, but a new Ukrainian campaign may catch their attention.

In the wake of the Kremlin's annexation of Crimea, Ukrainian women are calling for a sex embargo against Russians.

The sex boycott already has its own line of t-shirts, all carrying the official logo of two hands clasped together, creating a rather suggestive shape.

The slogan: “Don’t give it to a Russian!” is followed by a verse from Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko’s 1838 poem “Kateryna”: “O lovely maidans, fall in love, but not with the Moskaly [the Russians].”

The Facebook page "Don't give it to a Russian" launched last week.

One post reads [translated by Al Jazeera]:

All our female heroes, who agreed to be photographed in patriotic shirts, each had something of their own in mind... Do not give Crimea to a Russian, do not let a Russian capture your land, do not give money to a Russian or do not let a Russian win... Funny enough, sex came to mind last. What message would you send, if you put this shirt on? Write in comments.
