After a message that McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczynski first sent to employees by email, giant queues formed in Russia for the ultimate taste of beef cutlets and chicken nuggets.
However, not everyone sat because of hunger, as some cunning customers saw an opportunity to make a profit.
According to screenshots from the Russian online market, food prices at McDonald’s have skyrocketed, despite the fact that food was inevitably sold cold.
The situation is exploited and then someone is incredibly trying to exchange four burgers, nuggets and gravy for £ 250.
The starting business is trying to earn £ 46 by selling just two burgers, two drinks and a cherry pie.
Coca-Cola, which cut off supplies to Russia, also led to the fact that the price of the cup rose to 8 pounds.
In his statement, Mr. Kempczynski said: “V. conflict in Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis in Europe has caused untold suffering to innocent people. As a System, we join the world in condemning aggression and violence and praying for peace.
“In the more than thirty years that McDonald’s has been operating in Russia, we have become an integral part of the 850 communities in which we operate.
“At the same time, our values mean that we cannot ignore the unnecessary human suffering that is unfolding in Ukraine.”
As brutal bloodshed and displacement continue in Ukraine, McDonald’s said it was impossible to name a reopening date as supply problems also affected restaurants across the border in Russia.
The video was posted online Ukraine Live news showed cars queuing in Moscow’s driveway, and photos posted on Twitter show some desperate customers lining the streets walking through the snow.
The signature said: “McDonald’s is closing in Russia forever, here is my friend’s stash.” Naturally, Reddit was not disappointed, as people thought it would be a “good business opportunity” if it tried to sell burgers.
But others jokingly wondered why he was trying to hide McDonald’s food.

One man jokingly said, “So you’re saying it’s a reliable long-term risk-free investment?”
Another said: “Maybe you can leave it on the shelf and it will still be fine for a few months.”
A third joked, “If it’s not for personal consumption, it’s definitely a good business opportunity to sell stale burgers at an inflated price.” The fourth added, “Did you eat a hamburger from McDonald’s one day? They’re … not very much.”
