Netflix was sued in Russia for stopping work

Russian users of the streaming service Netflix have filed a class action lawsuit with the Khamovnichesky Court of Moscow. The news agency TASS reported this, citing lawyer Konstantin Lukoyanov of Chernyshov, Lukoyanov & Partners.

The plaintiffs are demanding 60 million rubles due to the unilateral refusal to provide services in Russia. The lawsuit asks to recover 2 million rubles in favor of each plaintiff as compensation for moral damages, as well as to levy an additional fine of 50% of the amount awarded to the plaintiffs. In addition, the court is asked to oblige Netflix to resume access to the service and content for Russian users.

Recall that on March 7, the Netflix team announced its decision to suspend operations in Russia, and then removed its apps from the Russian versions of the App Store and Google Play. The apps reappeared last week. However, the Netflix Russian site still displays the warning “Netflix is not available in your country. And even if you manage to install the app from the App Store and Google Play, you need a foreign account to watch it.
