According to former president Dmitry Medvedev, Russians should download for free movies, music, and other media from Western entertainment corporations that withdrew from the nation due to the conflict in Ukraine.

The major players in the film business, such as Disney, Warner Bros., Universal, Paramount, and Sony, as well as streaming services like Netflix, Spotify, Megogo, and Amazon Prime Video, have all stopped or delayed operations in Russia over the past year.

What do you know? When asked how to acquire foreign-produced information that is now banned in Russia due to sanctions, Medvedev told media on Saturday, "Find legitimate pirates and download anything from them."

We'll just download everything and use it for free if Netflix and the others abandon us. In order to cause the most harm, I would also simply post it everywhere online. Greatest harm to render them bankrupt.

Although when many around him reminded out that the information could be easily downloaded online, Medvedev, who is presently the deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council, claimed that as a legal expert, he has always had a bad attitude toward piracy and preferred to overpay for content.

Yet as of right now, I'm handling things in accordance with the adage "you got what you asked for." Let them go bankrupt," he said.

A recent discussion between the Russian government and foreign content producers about losing some of their non-property rights in the nation was also mentioned by Medvedev.

The ex-president noted Netflix, which left Russia in April and lost 700,000 members. The streaming platform's shares dropped by 37% as a result of the first drop in user base in more than ten years, which resulted in a staggering $40 billion market value loss.

In May, Disney calculated that the closure of the Disney Channel in Russia alone cost the company $195 million.
