[August 26, 2014] MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's food safety watchdog has ordered the temporary closure of one of McDonald's restaurants in Yekaterinburg in the Urals region, the fifth such closure in recent weeks, the fast food chain said on Tuesday.   

The restaurant was closed as a result of mass unscheduled inspections by Rospotrebnadzor, the regulator, a spokeswoman for McDonald's in Russia said.

The state watchdog agency previously closed three McDonald's restaurants in Moscow and one in Stavropol and unveiled sweeping checks at its outlets across the country.

Rospotrebnadzor was not immediately available for comment.
