Spotify Says “Nyet!” To Russia In Response To New Media Law, Suspends Streaming Service

A new Russian law that makes it illegal to discredit the Russian military will cause Spotify to suspend its streaming service.

Spotify Technology SA said today that it’s getting out of Russia, citing the new law. Earlier this month, the company closed its office indefinitely in response to what it termed Russia’s “unprovoked attack on Ukraine.”

The service is expected to end in early April, according to one person with knowledge of the situation. How the service will handle refunds to its customers was not detailed.

When it closed its office, Spotify cited employee safety and its role as a news provider.”to ensure that Spotify continues to serve as an important source of global and regional news at a time when access to information is more important than ever.”
