Russia's Kira Plastinina pulls back from foreign expansion


Kira Plastinina, a Russian clothing network owned by the daughter of Russian billionaire Sergey Plastinin, has revised its earlier announced plans for global expansion in favour of the domestic market.

However, owing to Russia’ economic crisis, these plans have been revised.
