Netflix has indefinitely paused all future Russian projects and acquisitions as a result of the ongoing invasion of Ukraine. The streaming service is examining the impact of current events. The service launched in the country just over a year ago and is believed to have about 1 million subscribers.
Earlier this week, the company confirmed it would refuse to broadcast Russian propaganda, contradicting a law that just came into effect. It requires streaming services with more than 100,000 daily users to carry 20 major Russian federal television channels, many of which broadcast Kremlin propaganda.
The past few days have seen an increasing pushback from Hollywood against Russia, including Disney, Warner Bros, Paramount, Sony and Universal all delaying their upcoming film releases.
Disney is planning to make future business decisions based on the evolving situation. For now, they are working with their partners to provide urgent aid and other humanitarian assistance to refugees.
The Cannes film festival has stated that no Russian delegations or attendees with ties to the government will be welcomed in May. The European Film Academy also announced that Russian films will not be eligible for the next European Film Awards.
