McDonald’s said it hoped reopening would bring a ‘sense of normalcy’ back to the war-torn nation.  

Yaroslav Holovatenko from Kyiv said: ‘This is a nice gift from McDonald’s.’

Paul Pomroy, McDonald’s senior vice-president, said: ‘We’ve become convinced that our reopening will return a small, albeit important, sense of normalcy to Ukraine.

‘Ukraine’s leaders have said that returning to work is the best way for foreign companies to support the local economy and the Ukrainian nation.’

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, forcing millions to flee the country. 

In May, McDonald’s announced it was leaving Russia after 30 years in the country, closing 800 restaurants.
