Morbidly obese man chains himself to a McDonald’s in Moscow

They are depriving me of the food I have eaten all my life!

March 13th was the final day that 850 McDonald’s locations in Russia were allowed to remain open. At one Moscow location, Lukas Safranov, son of famous Russian painter Nikas Safranov, chained himself to the door.

Eventually, Moscow police unchained him and led him away. Safranov, who is morbidly obese, yelled that McDonald’s food is what he has eaten all his life. The stunt was probably meant as performance art.

McDonald’s is a beloved cultural icon for many young Russians.
