The coca-cola question is out of date, it's now 3 countries where you can't officially buy it as they've pulled out of Russia.

(There is a lot of it still on sale in Russia though due to grey market imports but the same is true of Cuba.)

Well, it seems like the Habib Gulzar Beverage company and official Coca Cola bottling facility, built in 2006, is still standing at, Ground Floor, Kabul 2000, Afghanistan. No idea whether it's still running, or how many bottles of Coca Cola were turned out in the 15 years of the bankrolled puppet state.

Agreed. Not a holiday (generally). From WIkipedia - "Saint Valentine's Day is not a public holiday in any country,"

The Coca-Cola question is for sure ambiguous:

Of course, you can buy Coca-Cola in Cuba in many restaurants. It's imported from Mexico, as far as I know.

When it comes to official/direct sales, I wonder how is the situation in Afghanistan, Iran and nowadays also in Russia and Belarus.

I am also curious whether The Coca-Cola Company is delivering itself its products to small island nations (e.g. in the Pacific) or whether local businesses bring it themselves (e.g. from Australia or New Zealand) which then would be the same situation as in Cuba.
