ukraine russia crisis: Netflix suspends service in Russia

Netflix Inc. has suspended its service in Russia, a company spokesperson said on Sunday.

Earlier this week, Netflix temporarily halted all future projects and acquisitions in Russia as it assessed the impact of Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

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

Netflix previously said it had no plans to add state-run channels to its Russian service, despite a rule that would require it to distribute state-backed channels.
