Another McDonald’s casualty falls due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
This time it’s Kazakhstan, home to 20 million citizens and the richest market in Central Asia, that is feeling the loss. The closure is related to a supply chain issue. McDonald’s has forbidden its stores from importing meat patties from Russia, which had provided them since the chain opened in Kazakhstan in 2016.
