McDonald’s and Coca-Cola and a number of other large companies have temporarily stopped the sale of their products in Russia.

The move is in response to the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

McDonald’s has now said its 850 restaurants in Russia will close, although the 62,000 employees who work for the company will continue to be paid.

It has also temporarily shut its 108 restaurants in Ukraine.

Coca-Cola has also released a statement following its decision to stop operations in Russia.

McDonald’s and Coca-Cola join a growing list of global businesses which have decided to stop sales in Russia.

Film companies Disney and Sony recently said they’ll no longer be releasing their films in Russia, and a number of concerts and shows have been cancelled there too.

Starbucks has also stopped sales of their products in the country and will be closing 100 coffee shops.
