Fiverr Suspends Business in Russia


Recommended Posts

I worked with an artist living in Russia for 3 months this summer. We became friends. I live in the U.S. I feel I need to speak up. I am in total disagreement with this "Suspending business in Russia" policy.
According to a Fiverr blog post March 9 : "We also mourn with our global community of freelancers and business owners, who work daily across borders, languages, and cultures to create opportunity. They know that any conflict that divides like-minded and good people into “us vs. them” represents a loss for all of humanity and is contrary to everything the Fiverr community stands for."
 It seems that you are promoting an "us vs them" mentality, a war mentality against the Russian citizens that are vendors on Fiverr. The Russian people are not waging a war against  Ukraine and yet Fiverr is "penalizing" them. 
COME ON!

Not only Fiverr. Most non-russian businesses are pausing or completely removing their Russian presence. Fiverr is just following a trend of sanctions imposed by a multitude of other international businesses. And the focus is simple, to stop the war, a war that no one asked for. Hopefully the Russian people can finally rise and solve this issue once and for all.
