Starbucks is the latest major U.S. company to pull its business out of Russia. The coffee chain announced Monday that it would close its 130 stores in Russia, and pay its 2,000 Russian employees for six months while they seek work elsewhere. Starbucks has been operating in Russia for over 15 years, but the stores account for less than one percent of its total revenues. What kind of impact do these closures have on Russia's war effort?
Do you think chains like McDonald's (they announced back in March, 800 stores) and Starbucks will ever return to Russia?
