Netflix said Sunday it will stop selling and providing its streaming video service in Russia for the time being.
"Given the circumstances on the ground, we have decided to suspend our service in Russia," the company said in a statement.
The company did not specify what would happen to existing subscriber accounts or when it would reevaluate the matter.
Netflix and other major entertainment companies have shunned Russia in a variety of ways in the past week and a half. Netflix put productions in Russia on hold after the war in Ukraine began. Major Hollywood studios have also postponed new movie releases in the country.
