Burger King wants to get out of Russia

Restaurant Brands International (RBI) announced Thursday that Burger King’s withdrawal from Russia is planned but will take some time. “Do we want to immediately suspend all Burger King activities in Russia? Yes, CEO David Sher wrote in an open letter.

Can we stop the strike today? No.” The reason why nearly 800 branches remained open is the franchise partners controlled by businessman Alexander Kolobov. RBI owns only 15 percent of the joint venture in Russia.
