Three more McDonald's restaurants closed in Russia

Three more McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) restaurants have been closed in Russia, bringing the total amount of shut branches now up to eight.

Russia's food safety regulator, Rospotrebnadzor, still maintains that the closings are due to sanitary violations, although they coincide with heightened tensions over the Ukraine crisis.

McDonald's said earlier this week that it will appeal the decisions by a court in Moscow.

    I have been to many restaurants in Russia. Compared to most of them MCD looks like hospital intensive care ward as far as being clean and sterilized. This is completely and totally politically motivated move. Period.

    What a coincidence that MCD restaurants were closed as soon as sanctions against russia were in place. It is an absolut joke when you compare other public places in Russia and see how dirty they actually are.
