The northeastern city of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second largest, has been regularly heavily bombed since Russia began its invasion more than six weeks ago.

On Sunday, Mok shared an update from Kharkiv, noting that the infected staff were “fine” and that the restaurant team was in the process of moving “all food products and undamaged equipment” to another location in the city.

“The work does not stop,” he added.

Andrés also took to Twitter to address the strike, as well as provide an update on the well-being of employees at the restaurant.

The WCK Foundation, founded by Andres in 2010 and an organization focused on providing meals in disaster and war zones, has been supplying Ukrainians with food since the beginning of the conflict, with units in about 30 cities across the country, according to its official website.
