On March 7, 2022, Netflix left Russia, announcing the suspension of production of all domestic projects and the operation of the service itself in principle. At the same time, the Ukrainian online cinema Megogo left the country. And if the content of the second could be easily found on the Internet, then the original Netflix projects were only officially available there. We discuss 7 alternatives to streaming services that have left Russia with experts from big data platform Caltat.
