Social Media Platforms against Russia
Social Media Platforms Against Russia
Last week, February 2022, Russia started the war with Ukraine, which has caused a reaction from social media platforms.
Here is what Disney had to say ''Given the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and the tragic humanitarian crisis, we are pausing the release of theatrical films in Russia, including the upcoming 'Turning Red' from Pixar," a Disney spokesperson said in a statement on Monday night. "We will make future business decisions based on the evolving situation."
The company also added that they work with other non-governmental organizations to provide aid and additional humanitarian assistance to refugees. Disney had multiple film sets planned to release in March for Russia. Some of the things they were going to release; Marvel's "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" on May 5 and Pixar's "Lightyear" on June 16.
Another social media platform that has done something in Russia is Netflix. Netflix says that it won't air any state TV channels in Russia.
"Given the current situation, we have no plans to add these channels to our service," Netflix told CNN Business in a statement Monday. The news came a week after Russia launched a military assault on Ukraine. The invasion has been condemned by many nations worldwide and sparked a series of crippling economic sanctions targeting the Russian economy.
Many businesses and other social media platforms are stopping services or making comments to Russia. What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree with the Social Media Platforms?
