From the Guardian:
Parent company RBI cannot do it directly because of complicated legal contract with main partner
The owner of Burger King has said the operator of its 800 stores in Russia has “refused” to close them, despite its demand to suspend trading after the invasion of Ukraine.
Last week, Burger King, which is owned by Restaurant Brands International (RBI), said it had suspended all supply chain, operational and marketing support for the Russian operation.
From Yahoo News (Business Insider):
7,000 Russian troops have been killed in battle, according to a US intelligence estimate.
Russian troop deaths are already more than the number of American troops killed in either the Iraq or Afghanistan wars.
At this rate, Russia is suffering what could soon be unsustainable losses.
