McDonald’s Restaurants Being Shuttered In Moscow

war is bad for business - McDonald's

It can be difficult to express sympathy for a widespread American corporation that delivers a range of food products which are almost bankrupt in nutritional value. However, McDonald’s Corporation (which is privately run) is paying a completely unnecessary penalty for the anti-productive policies of statism and big government.

Russia’s food safety agency will conduct checks on McDonald’s restaurants in the Ural region one day after four branches of the chain were shuttered in Moscow. The agency claims that it’s for “food safety”, but customers and anyone else who is following current events are getting a hunch that it’s really about getting back at the U.S. for antagonistic international politics.
