While more than 1,000 major global businesses have curtailed their presence on the Russian market since the war’s outbreak, at least 237 still maintain their operations there, according to a study by Yale School of Management published on July 20.
Why the Russian McDonald's clone is failing
As part of a broader examination of how the Russian economy is faring under Western sanctions, the team of Yale researchers, chaired by Professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, graded major Russia-involved companies as follows:
A – abandoned Russia completely (309 companies);
B – suspended operations (497 companies);
C – scaled down operations (171 companies);
D – halted further investment (160 companies);
F – business as usual (237 companies).
Most of the companies from the F group are Chinese, although a handful of U.S. businesses are also present there – Patreon, Cloudflare, and Valve Corporation.
The full list of the companies mentioned in the study can be found in the paper here.
