Recall that Spotify has completely disabled services in Russia since April 11. Thus, 1.5 million paid subscribers were lost even before the complete shutdown on April 11 – in March, the subscription became impossible to renew, but it was still possible to continue using it. Another 600 users are expected to shut down in April.

Recall that officially Spotify began working relatively recently – in the summer of 2020. Thus, the service did not last even two years in Russia.
