McDonald’s to permanently leave Russia

MCDONALD’S has announced it is selling all of its Russian branches in response to the ongoing war in Ukraine.

The fast-food giant, which first opened in Russia 30 years ago as the Soviet Union crumbled, has 847 stores in the country, employing some 62,000 people.

McDonald’s first closed its stores in March following international outcry at Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

A number of other Western companies have agreed to sell their Russian branches or hand them over to local managers following the heavy sanctions imposed on the country in the wake of mad Vlad’s invasion.
