KIEV, April 4 (Reuters) - McDonald's has suspended work at its restaurants in Crimea for "manufacturing reasons", the U.S. fast food chain said on Friday, adding it hoped to resume work as soon as possible.

In a statement on its Ukrainian website, McDonald's said it would offer its employees in Crimea work at "any other McDonald's restaurants in Ukraine" and would help relocate them. (reporting by Natalia Zinets, writing by Elizabeth Piper, editing by Lidia Kelly)
