KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- A Tennessee liquor store owner says he's fed up with Russia's antics, so he's banning Russian vodka from his shelves.

Bob Gilbertson, owner of Bob's Liquors in Knoxville, says he's not happy about Russia's recent and aggressive involvement in Ukraine over Crimea. He has decided to sell his Russian vodka at cost to get rid of it.

"The Russian aggression against the Ukraine just went against my grain," says Gilbertson. "They're trying to push us and pushing us all to the brink," he says.

Gilbertson says he'll keep Russian vodka off the shelves until the situation overseas changes.
