Russian Netflix users are suing the streaming service

Russian Netflix users have filed a class-action lawsuit against the streaming giant for exiting the Russian market, demanding 60 million rubles ($726,000) in compensation, the RIA news agency reported on Wednesday.

Netflix Inc announced in March that it had suspended its service in Russia and temporarily halted all future projects and acquisitions in the country as it assessed the impact of Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

“Today, a law firm representing the interests of Netflix users filed a class action lawsuit against the American Netflix service in the Khamovnichesky District Court in Moscow,” RIA quoted the law firm Chernyshov, Lukoyanov & Partners as saying.

“The reason for the lawsuit was a violation of the rights of Russian users due to Netflix’s unilateral refusal to provide services in Russia.”

Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Numerous foreign companies have announced the temporary closure of shops and factories in Russia or said they would leave the country forever since Moscow launched a so-called “military special operation” in Ukraine on February 24.
