Solidarity with Ukraine
As we watch the Ukrainian resistance to invasion by Russian forces we are doing all we can to continue to support the individuals and communities that are suffering on both sides of the border.
As a platform for people to support one another, it is devastating to see the world as divided as it appears to be today. While we refuse to be drawn into conversations about whether we should cause more pain and suffering by implementing our own policies against Russia, we are working with the realities of a legal and financial system that is in flux.
As a result, we are currently unable to make payments in Rubles (RUB) and are experiencing significant delays and limitations on payments in Hryvnia.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates to those who are impacted.

💸 Open Source Collective has started a fund to make it easier for OSC collectives to support Ukraine.
