This was announced by the Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmitry Kuleba in Facebookreports Ukrinform.
According to the Foreign Minister, with the start of a full-scale Russian invasion, McDonald’s, like many others, suspended the operation of restaurants in Ukraine for security reasons. But the Foreign Ministry believes that now there are conditions for the resumption of their work, so they are actively persuading the company to return.
“A few weeks ago, we established a connection with the Ukrainian office, and then with the headquarters of McDonald’s in the United States. We also raised this issue in official contacts with the US government, because McDo is one of the most famous American brands. The process is moving forward,” Kuleba said.
As reported, the first McDonald’s in Ukraine was opened on May 24, 1997 in Kyiv. The company has more than 100 restaurants in 25 cities of Ukraine. Restaurants are currently closed for security reasons.
