McDonald's said on Friday that a total of 12 of its branches in Russia had been temporarily closed over the state food safety regulator's allegations of sanitary violations. The U.S. fast-food chain, which has 440 restaurants in the country, also said that more than 100 inspections were underway at its restaurants in various regions of Russia. The company said in a statement, "We are studying the essence of claims in order to determine the necessary actions for the swift re-opening of restaurants for visitors."
