Hollywood actress from Ukraine Ivanna Sakhno for the first time said that she had terminated the contract with Netflix.

Sakhno gave an interview to Marichka Padalko, in which toldthat she was approved for the role of an American from the Soviet Union even during the Covid-19 pandemic:

“My team even knows, immediately says no. I had a moment, I was involved in a Netflix series. It was during covid. It was the role of a Russian woman. It was an American role, but she had a background from the Soviet Union. I was already attached to this project because at that time it was one of the first major roles in a major Netflix series. We didn’t start filming, we immediately closed due to covid. And I realized that I cannot play a person, even from the Soviet Union. I canceled my contract with Netflix. I had some problems,” said Sakhno.
