The social media platform, TikTok, has suspended some of its features in Russia.

Users in Russia will be unable to upload new content and won’t be able to live stream.

This new system comes after the Russian government brought in a new law meaning people who the government feel are spreading fake information about Russia’s army could be put in jail.

Streaming service Netflix has said it is also pulling out of Russia in protest at the invasion. It has stopped streaming in the country and will stop future projects being filmed in the country.

TikTok has around 36 million users in Russia and is where a large number of the company’s users are believed to be.

Since Friday, anyone in Russia who writes news or says anything that the government feel is false about the military could face many years in jail.
