These Companies Have Stopped Doing Business in Russia. Going Back Might Not Be Easy.

As a response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, hundreds of companies either stopped doing business in Russia altogether, temporarily paused operations there, or otherwise limited their activities and investments in the country. Many companies expect that once hostilities end, they'll be able to resume business, and they are looking forward to that day because Russia represents a sizable portion of their revenue. McDonald's, for example, closed its restaurants in Russia after coming under public pressure, and announced this week that it wants to completely exit the Russian market and sell its business to a local buyer.
