Why this petition matters

Started by Sucharita Ghosh

Shut down all McDonalds and other fast food chains in Russia.

Russia has brought war to Ukraine. They poorly underestimated the ability of Ukrainian people. As countries impose sanctions on Russia, the Ukrainian people fight and protect their land well. When news gets to the Russian people and Russian army, Russian soldiers give up their fight and wait for their mothers to pick them up. 

Ukrainian people and national leaders are not the only ones who can create hurdles for Russia. Many companies have halted business in Russia since the invasion of Ukraine.

At this time, McDonalds has made no real comment on their business in Russia. McDonalds has 847 restaurants in Russia, with the country accounting for around 9 per cent of its total revenues. New York state's pension fund chief wrote in letters to several companies to halt business in Russia. The letters from New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli urged companies to review their businesses in Russia because they face "significant and growing legal, compliance, operational, human rights and personnel, and reputational risks." 

Here's a list of companies that have pulled out of/paused business in Russia.

Exxon, BP, Equinor, Shell, Total, ENI, Orsted, OMV, Siemens, Fortum, Uniper, Trafigura, Norsk Hydro, ABB, Sandvik, Deutsche Post, Ford, GM, Boeing, Airbus, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, Spotify, Canada Goose, Expedia, Adidas, Harley-Davidson, Daimler Truck, Volvo, Mercedes Benz, Toyota, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Renault, H&M, Dell, Maersk, MSC, Frontline, Electrolux, UPS, Fedex, Norway’s sovereign wealth fund, HSBC, ING, Nordea, RBI

Lets add Mcdonalds to this list.
