The streaming giant on Sunday announced it would pull its business from the country in response to its invasion of Ukraine, as first reported by Variety. The announcement comes after Netflix said earlier this week that it was halting all future projects and Russian acquisitions, as well as removing all state-run programming from its site.

"Given the circumstances on the ground, we have decided to suspend our service in Russia," a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement to Insider.

Netflix joins several companies that announced on Saturday and Sunday they are temporarily cutting cut ties with Russia, including Zara, LVMH, TikTok, Visa, and American Express, among others.
