First McDonald’s in Moscow 1990

Old video showing the long queue on the opening day (Jan 31, 1990) of the first – and back then the world’s largest – McDonald’s restaurant in former Soviet Union…

The restaurant was operated by McDonald’s Canada instead of the American HQ, probably to avoid the sensitivity issue as the Cold War has just ended.

McDonald’s also opened its first outlet in mainland China in October the same year.
