McDonald’s to sell its Russian business, try to keep workers


              FILE - The oldest of Moscow's McDonald's outlets, which was opened on Jan. 31, 1990, is closed on Aug. 21, 2014. McDonald’s says it's started the process of selling its Russian business, which includes 850 restaurants that employ 62,000 people. The fast food giant pointed to the humanitarian crisis caused by the war, saying holding on to its business in Russia “is no longer tenable, nor is it consistent with McDonald’s values.” The Chicago-based company had temporarily closed its stores in Russia but was still paying employees.
