Russian Man Explains How He Bought 50 McDonald’s Burgers Before All Restaurants Closed

Russian Man Explains How He Bought 50 McDonald’s Burgers Before All Restaurants Closed

A Russian man has 50 reasons to be McHappy after buying up a massive cheeseburger stash before all McDonald's stores closed across the country. 

In a bonkers photo shared to social media, the man gave everyone a peek inside his fridge to show off his huge burger haul.

And there's also a pineapple, so no worries about this LAD getting scurvy after one too many meat patties.

Speaking to LADbible, one of his pals detailed just how he went about getting his hands on a haul so large the Hamburglar himself would be seething with jealousy.

"He really just likes McDonald's and wanted to stock up," he said. “Hey bought mostly cheeseburgers, one of the cheapest items so he could buy in bulk.

"He spent about $150USD or 20,999.98 Russian Ruble on about 50 burgers.”

For those playing at home, that equates to $203AUD or £115.

He was tossing up the idea of potentially selling some of his stash online and he certainly wouldn't be the only one.

Macca's meals have already appeared on social media for sale at massively inflated prices after Russia' 850 McDonald's restaurants were ordered to shut.

The closure sent Russians scrambling to their nearest McDonald's restaurant for one final meal before all the Golden Arches.

Lines stretched for nearly a kilometre outside some Macca's, with video footage on social media that showed car after car lining up in a Moscow drive-thru.

Many were keen to get one final Big Mac for themselves, while others thought they would use the moment as a chance to make a quick buck by selling it online.

A meal with two burgers, two drinks, and a cherry pie, was being sold for a casual 7,500 rubles (AUD$84 or £46).

Russians with deeper hip-pockets could fork out 45,000 rubles (AUD$450 or £250) for a four burger dinner meal with nuggets and dipping sauce.

The mad McDonalds rush comes after CEO Chris Kempczinski shared an email announcing the temporary closure of all its restaurants due to the ‘unspeakable suffering to innocent people’ in Ukraine. 

"The conflict in Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis in Europe has caused unspeakable suffering to innocent people," he said.

"As a System, we join the world in condemning aggression and violence and praying for peace. Our number one priority from the start of this crisis has been – and will remain – our people." 

Kempczinski went on to state McDonald's has ‘provided immediate financial support to our team in Ukraine’, and that it is continuing to pay full salaries for Ukrainian employees as the conflict continues to unfold. 

The company has also donated $5 million to its Employee Assistance Fund, and supports ‘relief efforts led by the International Red Cross in the region’.
