Stop Russia, Stop war in Ukraine!

While Ukraine is under missile attacks GitHub could be used by Russians to develop apps and platforms aiming to destabilize Ukrainian web resources.

Please, prevent these actions and don’t stay on the same side with invaders! All information about war can be found at:

We urge you to close GitHub for Russia and its developers! We value your support and we are in need for your actions!


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. You can read more about our policies on GitHub Docs.

In accordance with our Community Forum Code of Conduct, we are closing this discussion.
