YEKATERINBURG, May 13. /TASS/. The 500th McDonald's restaurant in Russia opened on Wednesday in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg.
The ceremony was attended by the city's mayor, Yevgeny Roizman, and McDoonald's Russia managing director Alexey Semenov.
"The opening of McDonald's [restaurants] marked the start of the Soviet Union's international integration," Roizman told TASS.
