Additionally, with much regret, we're taking the following actions that follow the sanctions imposed by the EU and US on Russia and Belarus:
- We are banning Russian and Belarussian vendors, customers, users, and new signups. We will keep the ban in place as long as the EU and the US keep their sanctions in place
- This year’s revenue from Russia and Belarus will be donated to charities in Ukraine
