Newark, New Jersey, is the latest city to begin the process of denouncing Russian backed businesses.
On Wednesday, the Newark City Council unanimously voted to approve the city removing Lukoil's business license.
Lukoil is a Russian-owed gas station chain and has at least two locations in Newark on McCarter Highway.
North Ward Councilman Anibal Ramos Jr. sponsored the resolution ahead of the vote.
Ramos was joined by members of Ukrainian community at the meeting.
