TORONTO - Watch out Russian booze lovers.

Ontario's NDP wants the province's government-run liquor stores to suspend sales of Russian Standard vodka due to the international crisis in Ukraine.

New Democrat Cheri DiNovo tabled a motion Thursday in response to Russia's seizure of Crimea.

Finance Minister Charles Sousa says he'll consider it.

Saskatchewan had looked at the idea, but nixed it last week.

Premier Brad Wall said stores also carry a brand of Ukrainian vodka and customers can make their own choice on what they want to buy.

Ontario is home to one of the world's largest Ukrainian communities outside of Ukraine, with almost 350,000 people, according to the government.

It cancelled a planned trade meeting in Moscow last week because of the crisis of Ukraine, officials said.
