A group of Ukrainian women have launched a sex strike against Russian men to protest Moscow's moves in Crimea. Organizers of the campaign 'Don't give it to a Russian' have urged fellow Ukrainian females to deny sex to Russian men.

According to the Huffington Post, t-shirts designed by the campaign are printed with the slogan, followed by a verse from the poem Kateryna by Ukraine's Taras Shevchenko: "O lovely maidens, fall in love, but not with the Moskaly (the Russians).

Katerina Venzhik, one of the group's founders, said that the women started the campaign to draw attention to Russia's policies in Crimea, adding that the campaign will donate proceeds from the t-shirts to the Ukrainian army.

Whether the campaign will take off remains needs to be seen, as it catches momentum. However, in Russia, bloggers have responded fiercely to the movement.
