McDonald's and Coca-Cola boycott calls

Pressure is growing on Western food and drink giants to left Russia 
McDonald's and Coca-Cola have been criticised on social media for failing to speak out about the attacks and continuing to Work.

Well-known firms including Netflix and Levi's have already suspended sales or stopped providing services in Russia.McDonald's and Coca-Cola have not responded to the BBC's request for comment.

#BoycottMcDonalds and #BoycottCocaCola were trending on Twitter on Monday and over the weekend respectively.

The criticism comes amid calls for other well-known Western firms such as KFC, Pepsi and Starbucks and Burger King to close their outlets and stop sales in Russia.

However, most firms have stayed silent on the issue with KFC, Pepsi, Starbucks and Burger King also declining to respond to the BBC's requests for comment.

Thomas DiNapoli, comptroller of the New York state common retirement fund, wrote letters to the companies, according to Reuters reports, urging them to review their businesses in Russia

because they face "significant and growing legal, compliance, operational, human rights and personnel, and reputational risks".

Often, franchise owners will be able to take the decision as to whether or not to shut chains down, depending on terms of agreements they might have with big food chains like KFC or Starbucks.

In a recent statement, Kevin Johnson, the boss of Starbucks, described attacks on Ukraine as "unprovoked" and "unjust".

But most of its sites in Russia remain open, according to its website. Most of these franchises are run by the Kuwait-based Alshaya Group.
