Netflix suspends service in Russia amid Ukraine invasion



Netflix suspends service in Russia amid Ukraine invasion
According to reports, the streamer had four originals in the works in Russia before the suspension.
Following President Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, Netflix has suspended its streaming service in Russia.

According to multiple reports, the streaming service announced that it would suspend all future projects, acquisitions and now all of its services in Russia to protest the country-led war.

“Given the circumstances on the ground, we have decided to suspend our service in Russia,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a recent interview.

Prior to the latest move, Netflix had confirmed four new Russian original shows, including a crime series directed by Russian filmmaker Dasha Zhuk. The series, which had already begun filming, has been put on hold.

Although Netflix is still relatively new to Russia (the streaming platform launched in 2016 with an estimated 1 million subscribers), the latest move joins the ranks of other global companies and film studios that have decided to boycott the country in recent weeks in light of the ongoing war.

Companies such as Microsoft and Apple announced they were suspending operations in the country, although they continue to face sanctions.
