A cheeky Ukrainian campaign urges women to refrain from getting down to business with Russian men, in light of recent conflict between the two nations.
Ukraine has launched sex sanctions against Russian men, causing a Cold War style stand-off between the sheets. The 'Don't Give it to a Russian' campaign encourages Ukrainian women to slap a bonking ban on patriotic Russians as the dispute over Crimea hots up.
The move, headed by Katerina Venzhik, the editor of Kiev-based magazine Delo.UA has so far garnered support from more than 500 Ukrainian females and the message is clear - we're keeping our borders - and our legs - firmly shut. Meanwhile the initiative also borrows its slogan from the Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko’s 1838 poem, Kateryna: “Fall in love, O dark-browed maidens, but not with the Moskaly [the Russians],"
The campaign has already caused a stir among sex-starved Russians with some bloggers predictably branding the women 'prostitutes' without even a hint of irony. The raunchy campaign also includes a range of merchandise including mugs, t-shirts and promotional billboards. Meanwhile, the group now hopes to take the initiative into enemy territories. A recent post on the group's Facebook page said: "Russian women, care to join us? Our men are all still at home, but yours appear to be going to war." Meow!
