Responding to this ongoing Russia-Ukraine warfare, some big brands and services take a stand against Russia by boycotting and stopping their operation in Russia. For instance, some big guys in the Internet like Google and Youtube cut off its stream revenue to Russian media as it’s reported that Youtube “significantly limiting” recommendations to Russian media channels. Vocalizing the same tone, Meta announced its banning over Russian state media for running their ads in Meta’s platforms. Spotify also takes a bold move by restraining and filtering Russian state-affiliated content from its streaming services.
This horrible invasion by Russia triggers all the majority of giant brands such as Apple and Adidas to suspend their goods distribution in this land of Lenin. Since 1 March, Apple was reported for pausing their sale while Adidas freezes off their partnership with the Russian Football union. In the same spirit, Levi Strauss had announced their suspending sales in Russia and gave their hands by donating $300,000 to help the Ukraine’s refugees.
In the entertainment section, Disney, Warners Bros and Sony will delete Russia for their upcoming and ongoing blockbusters, such as “Turning Red” and “Morris”. It appears that Russian folks will miss “The Batman” show for the whole year.
