Russia's notorious politician, the leader of the Liberal and Democratic Party of Russia, LDPR, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, wants all McDonald's restaurants in Moscow and throughout Russia closed.
"McDonald's has closed its restaurants in the Crimea - this is very good. Now it needs to close all restaurants in Russia. I ordered the teams of municipal organizations of LDPR to put pickets in front of all McDonald's restaurants in Moscow and across the country. They should get out of the country ... as soon as possible," Zhirinovsky told reporters.
"We will close them across the country and then proceed to Pepsi," he added.
McDonalds was founded in 1940 by brothers Dick and Mac McDonald. The first restaurant opened in San Bernardino, California. The company was the first in the world to establish the concept of fast food restaurants in 1948.
