Netflix suspended its service in Russia as part of a boycott of the country

Netflix has completely shut down its service in Russia in response to the country's invasion of Ukraine. Since the full-scale invasion began on February 24, the streaming service has joined a growing list of corporations that have quit supplying Russia. 

Netflix has already announced a moratorium on Russian projects and acquisitions, as well as a refusal to broadcast 20 Russian propaganda channels that were mandated by Russian legislation. In the country, the service has now been completely shut down.

The service debuted in Russia in 2016, but it still has a limited subscriber base compared to its global domination. While it claims 222 million subscribers worldwide, just about 1 million of them are from Russia. 

Winter On Fire: Ukraine's Fight For Freedom, a 2015 documentary produced by the firm, is also accessible for free viewing. The video follows the Euromaidan protests in Ukraine, which began after former President Viktor Yanukovych chose to deepen Ukraine's connections with Russia over reaching a deal with the European Union. 

Netflix has joined the boycott of Russia by the major film studios in the West. As the situation worsens, studios such as Disney and Warner Bros. have removed their theatrical releases from the nation.
