It comes as a growing number of companies move to cut ties with Russia in a stand against the war - which is estimated to have killed hundreds of civilians and displaced more than a million since it was launched last week.
On Friday, a Sainsbury’s spokesperson said the supermarket stood “united with the people of Ukraine”.
“We have reviewed our product range and have decided to remove from sale all products that are 100% sourced from Russia,” they said.
“This means that from today we will no longer sell two products – Russian Standard vodka and Karpayskiye black sunflower seeds.”
On the same day, John Lewis Partnership - which runs department store John Lewis and supermarket Waitrose - said it was removing products made in Russia from sale.
“This means that, from today, we will no longer sell two products - one Russian Vodka in Waitrose and one line of pizza oven pellets in John Lewis,” the company said in a statement.
“We’re working with our suppliers to review products that have components of Russian origin and will be seeking to mitigate further exposure to the region.”
A spokesperson for Aldi told The Independent the supermarket chain had removed Russian-sourced vodka from its shelves.
The Co-op said on Friday its supermarkets were making the same move. “In response to the ongoing invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces and as a sign of solidarity with the people of Ukraine, we have taken the decision to remove from sale Russian-made vodka. It will not be stocked for the foreseeable future,” it said in a statement.
Asda confirmed it will stop selling products that originate from Russia in light of the invasion of Ukraine, but did not name specific items.
Meanwhile a Tesco spokesperson said it would not be “buying products from businesses that are wholly Russian owned”.
