Netflix has moved to bar its streaming service in Russia following President Vladmir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. According to multiple reports, the streamer announced that it would suspend all future projects, acquisitions and now all of its services in Russia in a bid to protest the war spearheaded by the country. Prior to the latest move, Netflix had confirmed four new Russian originals including a crime thriller series directed by Russian filmmaker Dasha Zhuk. The series which had began principal photography has been put on hold.
Although, relatively new in Russia (the streaming platform launched in 2016 with an estimated 1 million subscribers), the latest move joins other global corporate bodies as well as film studios who have in recent weeks moved to boycott the country amid the ongoing war. Companies including Microsoft and Apple announced that they were suspending activities in the country even as they continue to face sanctions.

However, he has not played this season after breaking his leg in a pre-season friendly against Villarreal in August.
“I’m really happy to sign a new contract,” said Fofana. “It shows the club have confidence in me offering me a contract to 2027. I’m really happy to be here. It’s my club, I love the fans, so I’m really happy and really looking forward to being back playing.” Leicester sit 12th in the Premier League and host French side Rennes in the Europa Conference League round of 16 on Thursday.
