In the ongoing bullshit that Russia is pulling in Europe, last week Putin banned the import of Polish Fruit & Vegetables. BBC News reports the reasoning for the ban is that “Russia’s food hygiene authorities said the imports had unacceptable levels of pesticide residues and nitrates.” Sure … we believe that. This clearly has NOTHING to do with the fact that Poland has been one of the most vocal critics of Russian actions in Ukraine. Nope, nothing at all. And Russia is not trying to punish Poland for toeing the line that Russia believes should be toed by all former Easter-Block nations. Nope, not at all.
But, one should never underestimate Poles & our ability to call bullshit when we see it.
Our fellow country men called bullshit on Putin in the most spectacular way by starting a social media protest, #EatApples Twitter / Selfie protest, that is quickly gaining tracking internationally & hopefully annoying Putin to no end.
