Vladimir Putin backing Russian version of McDonald's

Vladimir Putin wants Russia to form its own fast food empire to rival McDonald's.

Russian filmmaker brothers Nikita Mikhalkov and Andrei Konchalovsky - known as 'the Russian Coen brothers' - have reportedly proposed the nationalist food chain "Let's Eat At Home" to the government, which will have a menu of 30 to 40 items made from "regional produce".

According to The Sun, the brothers' proposal said: "The aim of the project is to promote import substitution and create alternatives to Western fast-food chains."

Putin's ministers are due to give their decision on funding for the 'Let's Eat At Home' programme in the coming days.
