Victoria restaurant donating profits to Ukraine and boycotting Russian alcohols

The PumpHouse Riverside Restaurant and Bar added a new Ukrainian dish, Chicken Kiev, to their menu with 100% of the profits from that dish going to a Ukrainian rescue organization.

VICTORIA, Texas – Victoria restaurant PumpHouse Riverside Restaurant and Bar is offering a new dish, chicken Kiev, with 100% of the profits going towards a Ukrainian rescue organization.

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues, some local businesses across the county are doing what they can to show support for Ukraine. The PumpHouse has added a traditional Ukrainian dish to its menu to show its support. The dish features a chicken that is pounded out, wrapped in trigone butter, breaded in panko, and then fried complimented with green beans and mashed potatoes.

Ethan Johnson is a waiter at the PumpHouse says so far it’s been a successful addition to the menu.

“We’ve been doing pretty good. We sell a few of them, we get a few donations, and I think everybody really goes to support it. We’ve also been boycotting Russian alcohols, like Russian Vodak, and changing the names of our drinks, for example, the White Russian or the Black Russian we’ll be changing the names as well,” says Johnson.

Johnson says that some have donated money without even getting anything just hoping to show their support to Ukraine.

The chicken Kiev is $20 and 100% of that goes towards a Ukrainian rescue organization.
