RUSSIA-UKRAINE-WAR-ASYLUM SEEKERS — More than 8,600 Russians have sought refuge in the U.S. on the Mexican border in recent months. Many fly from Moscow to Cancun, entering Mexico as tourists. To claim asylum in the U.S., they then proceed to a tiny piece of U.S. soil.

RUSSIA-UKRAINE-WAR-MCDONALDS -- Two months after the Berlin Wall fell, another powerful symbol opened its doors in the middle of Moscow: a gleaming new McDonald’s. It was the first American fast food restaurant to enter the Soviet Union, reflecting the new political openness of the era. For 9-year-old Vlad Vexler, who waited in a two-hour line to enter the restaurant on its opening day in January 1990, it was a gateway to the utopia he imagined the West to be. So it was all the more poignant for Vexler this week when McDonald’s announced it would temporarily close that store and nearly 850 others in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Will include archive photos.
