The move came after the streaming service, which launched in the country in 2016, paused all future projects and acquisitions from Russia. It also refused to carry free-to-air propaganda channels required under Russian media laws, Variety reported. 

In addition to Netflix, major players in Hollywood have taken swift action to condemn President Vladimir Putin’s actions.

Over the last week, musicians, festival organizers and industry leaders have announced their decisions to postpone events in Russia, severely limiting entertainment offerings in the country.
