Russia Responds To Sanctions By Closing McDonald's Locations

(Undated) -- Russia is closing several of its highest-profile McDonald's locations as tensions with the West heat up. Regulators cited safety violations in temporarily closing 12 locations, but the U.S. sees the move as a direct response to sanctions imposed by Western nations. "Bloomberg" reports Russia is inspecting another 100 restaurants, which will likely lead to dozens of Russian McDonald's locations being closed. The fast food chain says it is appealing the decision.
McDonald's first opened in Russia in 1990, although negotiations to bring the restaurant there began in the 1970s, during the Cold War.
