This is more than one week now, since “apple war” has begun. #EatApples – the campaign against Russian ban on fruit import. Nowdays there is no need to encourage anybody in Poland to eat apples. An apple a day not only keeps the doctor away. It has become a political statement. Since the business newspaper Puls Biznesu has published an editorial entitled “Stand against Putin: eat apples, drink cider”.
Poland is the world’s largest exporter of apples. The fruit plays a key part in many national dishes, such as apple pie.
To overcome the effects of the embargo, each of Poles should eat per year 4,5 kg of apples more. So let’s start eat or drink!
Additionaly the campaign on social media (Facebook or Twitter) has endorsed and grown up very quickly. Thousands of people are taking a pictures when eating these fruits and publishing with the hashtag #jedzjablka (#eatapples).
During eating apples you can also have them on your smartphones. There are a lot of apps available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone that have been dominated by the fruit.
