Fiverr - discriminates against Russians


Recommended Posts

Hello! I am not strong in English and I wrote this letter to Fiver with the help of a translator. I hope that I correctly conveyed the meaning of what is happening. Peace for everyone <3

Hello.
I'm talking about your closing the pages of Russian freelancers.
Don't you think it's hypocritical to write, "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." Now your community infringes and discriminates against Russian people. Your community sets people of other countries against us, Yes, and you yourself show your position. And all so as not to lose your face.
This is pure discrimination based on national origin.
I myself am horrified by the whole situation in Ukraine, just as I am in Russia, it is not easy for me. We have been shut down and we have no freedom of speech. And now there is nowhere to work.
Everything that happens is HORRIBLE! And your actions are disgusting!
I would be ready to help Ukraine with a percentage of my purchases or in some other way, along with a Fiverr. But thanks to your actions, you will lose talented people and additional support. Also, you showed your face. Hope more people know about it.

Below I attach a letter from the Fiverr

Hello Shirobako,

Let me start by saying that I completely understand where you're coming from and I, too, am horrified by everything that is happening in Ukraine. 

We know that this is an incredibly tense situation, driving lots of emotions for many of our community members, and we hear your concerns. 

Due to the ongoing war with Ukraine, global sanctions, and restrictions on Russia’s financial system, Fiverr has suspended services across Russia. 

We hope that there will be a peaceful end to the war at which point it will look towards reinstating its business in Russia.

Do you really think that people, who get sanctioned by collective west would blame their govenment and not those, who sanctioned them and cut them off tomorrow?

You do realize Russia started this right? No one asked for an invasion or any war. We are helping Ukrainians continue their life, while Russians are constantly leveling cities....

They didnt do much in Iran.

As far as I know Iran is not at the NATO borders. Ukraine is.

What does this have to do with what i said?
Yes, Russia did start this and yes, it is to blame.
I say that sanctions are not effective neither in the terms of making people in Russia revolt against their government, nor in lessening the power of its military forces. On the contrary, people in Russia will channel their agression not towards their government, but towards those, who sanctioned them, and that plays into the hands of russian propaganda.

Then they should be better informed. Sanctions come due to actions taken by their own government. So if they are to blame someone.. it's their own goverment.

I'm not talking about what should've happened,  i'm talking about what IS happening.
Maybe its better instead of blaming the circumstances, blame those who didn't take them into account before making a big and important action?

I think your are a bit confused here ... these actions are taken as a counter measure for the initial actions taken by the russian government ... not sure why you think Fiverr's actions are 'disgusting' when this should be directed to those who started this in the first place.
