Stop GitHub in Russia

As you may know, for the 15th day Russia continues its war against Ukraine. This war is unprovoked. Only Russian president Putin wants this war, population of Russia is unaware about this war or supports it. This is a result of Russian state propaganda. Thousands of people died, millions are refugees of internally displaced. Some cities are almost destroyed. Mariupol is sieged for 10 days.

I ask GitHub to block access to Russian companies so they can think about actions of their government. Putin started war in Europe similar to WWII. This shouldn’t be unanswered.

You can find information about invation to Ukraine here https://war.ukraine.ua/

GitHub is “home for all developers”. Even these supporting genocide in Ukraine. Most probably they would support Hitler during WW2.

Ukraine - Kyiv, Vinnytsia and Lviv in particular, is known as a new silicon valley: here’s a huge pool of talented developers who contribute to open source daily! And while russians keep working calmly, most of us simply can’t work, because of shellings. russians are wailing not getting their latte at Starbucks, Ukrainian people are wailing losing their children, families and homes. Are you sure you want to support that? Save your face and brand, while it’s not too late

GitHub’s vision is to be the home for all developers, no matter where they reside. We take our obligations with respect to government mandates seriously, which includes complying with stringent new export controls aimed at severely restricting Russia’s access to technologies and other items needed to sustain its aggressive military capabilities.
We also take seriously our responsibility to examine government mandates thoroughly to be certain that users and customers are not impacted beyond the scope of the mandates. This includes protecting open collaboration and the free flow of information in our interconnected community to support communications, humanitarian work, and organizing for change.

Do you know what I see in this reply? I don’t care about it at all, we won’t do it anyway even if millions of Ukrainians will die. It’s time to switch from Github to Gitlab, at least, Ukrainian created this service and he will understand us… Last but not least, as an act of protest I ask all Ukrainian developers delete their github accounts as well. If github and microsoft don’t care then we should do the same…

Oh yea, thank you for censorship as well. Neva eva will use again your service…
