American fast food chain Burger King plans to open its restaurants in the Crimea, where one of its major competitors, McDonald's, decided to suspend the work.

"We plan to enter the market in the Crimea, but I do not know when it is going happen yet," General Director of Burger King Russia, Dmitry Medovy said. For the time being, there are no Burger King restaurants in the Crimea.
