Netflix Suspends Service in Russia Amid Invasion of Ukraine
Monday, 07 March, 2022, 01:18
Netflix has suspended its service in Russia to protest the country’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Earlier this week, the streaming service had announced that it would pause all future projects and acquisitions from Russia, joining a growing list of companies that have cut ties with the country. Netflix had four Russian originals in the works, including a crime thriller series directed by Dasha Zhuk, which was shooting and has since been put on hold. Netflix also recently refused to carry 20 Russian free-to-air propaganda channels that it was required to host under Russian law.
Now, the company is taking an additional step in shutting down its service entirely.
“Given the circumstances on the ground, we have decided to suspend our service in Russia,” a spokesperson for Netflix said.
