    I'm personally not going to learn this bit, because I think it's quite irrelevant and there's other more important part of globalisation.

    But as far as I understand it, post-communism in Russia, all the major industries were privatised and bought up cheaply by (now) Oligarchs / friends of the state. In order to protect their interests they had to hire Chechen mafia members, and these mafia members committed crimes across the globe to defend their interests?

    I think.

    (Nothing to do with McDonalds unfortunately).
