Starting this Sunday (6), the streaming platform Netflix announced that it will suspend its services for Russian citizens as a result of Russia’s attacks on Ukraine. The information is from the Reuters news agency.

Earlier this week, the company had already announced the temporary interruption of all projects and acquisitions in Russia. In addition, Netflix recently reported that it would not add state-owned channels controlled by the Russian government to the platform, despite the country having a regulation that mandates the distribution of channels supported by the country’s government.

With the decision, the company joins several other large corporations that suspend their activities on Russian soil. Also this Sunday, the social network TikTok reported the partial blocking of services in the country and American Express, a financial services company, announced the interruption of all its operations in Russia. Companies like Apple, Disney, Volkswagen, Microsoft, Visa and Mastercard have also announced similar restrictions in recent days.
