This is the stomach-churning food that customers of Vkusno i Tochka – the chain that replaced McDonald’s in Russia – were served.

Rebranded as Tasty and Full Stop in English, the company would fill the void left by the American fast food giant over the war in Ukraine.

Instead, it hit the headlines for his rebellious eating.

Less than a month after the grand opening in Moscow, people have complained about serving moldy hamburger balls and ‘insect pots’.

Ksenia Sobchak, a TV celebrity and the most prominent female politician of the Russian opposition, said on her Telegram channel: ‘Vkusno i Tochka sells moldy burgers.

‘It seems they do not fully respect McDonald’s standards, at least in terms of product quality control.

‘Today, at least three cases have been reported of burgers with moldy buns sold to customers. Two of them were for my subscribers. ‘

Russians were promised a new era of fast food when McDonald’s agreed to sell its local business to millionaire Alexander Govor.

The local franchisee of the chain in Siberia tools across the portfolio of roughly 850 restaurants.

Hundreds of people gathered outside McDonald’s flagship location on Pushkin Square on Russia Day, a holiday that celebrates national pride, to try out the new menu.

The new owners had promised ‘the same but better’, yet some customers have their doubts after seeing the rebellious photos.

One said, ‘I do not like it when you find mold.’ Ms Sobchak urged the new management: ‘Figure it out, guys, you do not need to poison people.’

Others complained about the lack of meat in cheeseburgers, and cheese sauces with expired use-by-dates, but some people branded the accusations as ‘fake news’.
