Netflix discontinues to stream in Russia over the Ukraine conflict
Netflix has discontinued its service in Russia, according to US media reports, in response to Moscow's invasion of Ukraine
The US-based platform had already ceased its acquisitions and development of original programmes in Russia earlier this week.
"We have chosen to discontinue our service in Russia due to the situation on the ground," a spokeswoman told the US magazine Variety. Netflix did not respond to AFP's request for comment. With 221.8 million subscribers at the end of 2021, Netflix is the world's most popular streaming service.
According to media reports, it is a modest participant in Russia, with fewer than one million us.
