MOSCOW/YEKATERINBURG, August 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor has confirmed that a McDonald's restaurants in central Yekaterinburg near the Ural mountains had been closed on instructions from the agency.
On Tuesday morning, one of the eight McDonald's outlets in Yekaterinburg, located in the city center on 1905 Square, was shut down, an ITAR-TASS correspondent reported from the scene.
A sign on the door said, “The restaurant is closed for technical reasons. We apologize for the inconvenience."
Agency inspectors had already closed three McDonald's restaurants in Moscow, including the famous outlet on Pushkin Square that opened just before the fall of the Soviet Union, and one in the southern Stavropol region. The agency also launched sweeping checks at other locations nationwide.
McDonald's operates 435 restaurants in 85 Russian cities and sees the country as one of its top seven major markets outside the United States and Canada, according to its 2013 annual report.
