The world's biggest burger chain closed all its restaurants in Ukraine and Russia in March. McDonald's did not specify how many it planned to reopen. It sold most of its 850 restaurants in Russia to one of its local licensees in May. It had 109 restaurants in the country at the time.

The decision to reopen came after "extensive consultation and discussion with Ukrainian officials, suppliers, and security specialists," McDonald's says. The burger chain will begin restaurant reopenings in Kyiv and western Ukraine. Earlier this year, Ukraine's government started a program to relocate businesses westwards from war-ravaged areas.
