Channel 12 airs footage from Israelis in Moscow that shows Mcdonald’s and Starbucks branches in Russia’s capital remain open, despite announcements yesterday by both chains that they would be shutting down operations in the country due to its invasion of Ukraine.

The footage also shows a supermarket full of produce, apparently not impacted by the sanctions announced against the country.

An H&M store in Moscow is closed though, in line with the company’s decision to freeze its services in Russia.
