Boris Chernyshov, the MP of the Russian State Duma offered to recognize McDonald's, KFC and other fast food restaurant networks as the foreign agents and properly mark the advertisements of such food as the Russian mass media reported.
It is reported that he appealed with such initiative to Anna Popova, the Head of the Rosportebnadzor and Aleksandr Zharov, the Head of the Roskomnadzor.
'The ideology of the fast food is the fight against the healthy lifestyle. We do not eat our native food. The constant consumption of the food prepared with the use of the harmful components, for example, palm oil leads to the visceral injuries, diseases of lungs, heart, renal system, liver and obesity. The money that we sped at the fast food restaurants are transferred abroad', Chernyshov said.
He is sure that all these significantly harm the Russian nation.
'I demand to recognize McDonald's and other fast food restaurant networks in Russia as the foreign agents due to this and strengthen the checks of such places and their products. Also, I am sure that all advertisements and banners of such establishments should be marked as the production of the foreign agent', he added.
The law on the foreign agents works in Russia since 2012. Firstly it worked only towards the non-commercial organization, however, the State Duma of Russia adopted the draft law that recognizes all mass media sponsored abroad as foreign agents.
