The Russian government closed four McDonald’s restaurants in Moscow on Wednesday for alleged sanitary violations, though many believe the move was designed to be a dig at the United States. Many western European nations, including the U.S., have periodically ramped up sanctions against Moscow for months now, following Russia’s annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea in March. While, Russia has responded with sanctions of its own. Sanitary inspections will reportedly continue at other McDonald’s locations in Russia, where the restaurant chain operates 430 eateries across the nation. The Russian agency responsible for consumer rights and human well-being reportedly has a history of banning food products from nations that have poor relations with Russia
