After Russia attacked Ukraine, the world’s big restaurant chains started closing their Russian units. Yum Brands (Pizza Hut, KFC) was the first to stop its Russian operations on 7 March. This started a chain reaction, as on the next day McDonald’s and Starbucks announced their closure, followed by Papa John’s, Burger King and Panda Express later in the week.

New Yorkers are showing their solidarity with Ukraine by not visiting the formerly popular Russian Samovar restaurants, where sales plunged 60%. The problem with this is that owner Vlada von Shats actively supports Ukraine and her husband is Ukrainian. Denis Woychuk is also nervous, because he named his restaurant KGB (Kraine Gallery Bar) – he has received threats, so he is planning to put a ‘U’ before Kraine.

In ‘The worlds 50 best…’ project Parovoz Speak Easy bar in Kiyiv has been named one of the most new discoveries. Dima Shovkoplias, manager and bartender of the place is now mixing Molotov cocktails on the streets of Odessa.


What will Dima mix in his last cocktail?
