Big names in the West, such as giant Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and Starbucks, have already suspended operations in Russia. As a result of the conflict between the country and Ukraine. The escalation of sanctions further exacerbates the departure of business groups from Russian territory.

According to a statement given by David Shearer, Chairman of International Operations of RBI, RBI demanded that the joint venture shut down all the franchises immediately, but Alexander Kolobov refused to comply.

Shear explained the difficulty of closing BK Restaurants in a statement. “While we want to do this immediately, it is clear that it will take some time to do so based on the terms of our existing joint venture agreement,” he explains.
