Amazon suspends Prime Video services and put shipments on hold for both Russia and Belarus

Amazon joins a growing list of companies that suspend their services in Russia and Belarus for the Ukraine invasion. Amazon will also no longer be accepting new Russia and Belarus-based AWS customers and Amazon third-party sellers. 

In a blog post, the retail giant said, “Given the ongoing situation in Russia and Ukraine, we’ve taken additional actions in the region. As a reminder, unlike some other U.S. technology providers, Amazon and AWS have no data centres, infrastructure, or offices in Russia, and we have a long-standing policy of not doing business with the Russian government.” 

Earlier this week, several companies, including PayPal, Airbnb, Netflix, Mastercard, Visa and more, announced that they were suspending operations in the country.
