McDonald's falls victim of Molotov cocktail attack in Russia

In the morning of August 31, a group of unknown individuals threw a Molotov cocktail into a window of McDonald's restaurant in the city of Ivanovo, Central Russia. The perpetrators escaped from the crime scene immediately afterwards.

Employees of the restaurant managed to put down the fire before a fire brigade arrived. The police are looking for those, who committed the act of arson.

McDonald's chain has been under close attention in Russia lately. Several restaurants of the chain were closed in different cities of Russia, including Moscow, over violations of sanitary conditions and poor quality food.

Meanwhile, State Duma deputy from Just Russia Andrei Krutov appealed to Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika with a proposal to check the activities of charity fund Ronald McDonald House. The principal activity of the fund, according to the deputy, is "other forms of monetary intermediation". Charity is not indicated on the list of activities of Ronald McDonald House. The MP believes that one needs to understand where the collected money goes and how reliable financial statements from the fund are.

In addition, the organization, founded by foreign entities, is not registered in the Ministry of Justice as a foreign agent, Interfax says with reference to the Izvestia newspaper. The fund is registered at the place of mass registration.

Representatives of the fund rejected the deputy's accusations. They noted that Ronald McDonald House "timely generates adequate reports and sends them to the General Directorate of the Ministry of Justice of Russia in Moscow. The press service also said that the fund was not referred to non-profit organizations that serve as a foreign agent, since the organization did not engage in political activities.

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
