I’m going to say no, sorry. I remember the same post as @lenasemenkova. What I gathered from that is that any countries with less than ‘best of friends’ relationships with the U.S. seem to be prohibited from using Fiverr.

Don’t blame Fiverr, though. It is more a case of your everyday political madness.

The US? Are you sure it’s because of their relations with the US…?
