“I ordered for my girlfriend,”24 years old Oleksandr Koderkowski told AFP. Right now she has gone to work and I will take it for her. ‘

“He loves McDonald’s and I’m going to surprise him. ‘

McDonald’s suspended operations in Ukraine on February 24 after Russia invaded ukraine earlier this year.

In October, the three restaurants will be fully operational with McDonald’s Drive and Express Windows, the company said in a statement.

Seven more stores will be opened and more new restaurants will be opened in the capital and western parts of the country with a phased opening of restaurants, the statement added.

The resumption of operations in Ukraine after McDonald’s closure in Russia is seen by many Ukrainians as symbolic support for the country.

McDonald’s sold all of its restaurants to Russian businessman Alexander Goro with the announcement earlier this year to leave the Russian market.
