Gov. Cox orders the removal of all Russian products from state liquor stores
SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Spencer Cox issued an executive order Saturday, calling for the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to remove all Russian-produced and Russian-branded products from its shelves.
“Russia’s ruthless attack on a sovereign nation is an egregious violation of human rights,” Cox said. “Utah stands in solidarity with Ukraine and will not support Russian enterprises, no matter how small the exchange.”
We've issued an executive order requiring the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to remove all Russian-produced and Russian-branded products from its shelves immediately.

All DABC stores are required to remove the items immediately.
“The EO also orders the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity to review the state’s procurements for any other economic relationships with Russia,” read a statement from the governor’s office.
The governor has not stated when the order will be rescinded.
