McDonald’s Plans an Important Return


Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine unleashed untold human misery as well as catastrophic economic damage. 

In the first weeks after Russia invaded its European neighbor on February 24, 2022, millions of refugees surged out of the country. In those initial days, many western companies halted operations as well, unsure of the war’s outcome. 

But while hundreds of western companies abandoned Russia altogether, many put their Ukrainian operations on hold. 

Now, one of the biggest players is moving to restart operations in Ukraine, as the initial Russian invasion has been beaten back, many refugees have returned, and as Kyiv begins to gain the initiative on the battlefield.
