"Our ideological friends, US authorities have quite good understanding of the importance of the art. They know how to use Netflix to sneak into the houses, than into TV and then into people's heads", he said.
According to UNIAN, Medinskiy stressed that the US government supports Netflix not only financially, but by protecting it too.
The internet television network started its work in Russia from January 2016. Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media has decided to regulate Netflix activity in Russia. The Under Secretary of Mass Media and Communication Minister Aleksey Volin stated that the service has to present the mass media or TV Channel license to work in Russia.
