Submitted by gil on

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - In solidarity with the people of Ukraine, the Gil's LotD, Pro Football and Omaha Poop Tracker websites have implemented economic sanctions against the Russian Federation in opposition to its war of aggression. The sanctions, a firewall on all IP connections originating from Russian IP origins, went into effect the morning of February 26th.

In 2022, Gil's LotD will be responsible for some part of the estimated $875 billion dollars in revenue from e-commerce in the United States. The sanctions intend to deny as much as possible of that revenue from Russian government officials and government-connected businesses who support the current government's invasion of Ukraine. Sanctions implemented by Gil's LotD are widely held as responsible[citation needed] for the collapse of Muammar Gaddafi's Libyan government in 2011 and the Taliban's rule over Afghanistan in 2001. Gil's LotD believes that its sanctions will pressure Vladimir Putin and his government to withdraw from Ukraine and recognize Ukraine's independence as a state.
