Several US media reported on Sunday that the online video platform “Netflix” had suspended its service in Russia, in protest against the war in Ukraine.

Earlier this week, the video giant suspended its operations to buy rights and its own productions in Russia.

“Given the conditions on the ground, we have decided to suspend our service in Russia,” a spokesperson for the platform told Variety.

Although it registered 221.8 million subscribers at the end of 2021, Netflix is ​​a minor player in Russia, with less than a million subscribers, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The platform does not publish detailed figures about its activity in the Russian market, according to Agence France-Presse.

What is the fate of the viewer in light of the intensifying competition between Netflix and Disney?

With its decision on Sunday, Netflix joins many foreign companies that have announced the suspension of their activities or their complete withdrawal from Russia since the start of its attack on Ukraine.

On Monday, the company revealed to Vulture that it does not intend to comply with Russian law, which requires broadcasting platforms to include a number of free channels, some of which are means of government propaganda.
