“We are deeply concerned and strongly oppose Russia’s illegal war in Ukraine. After careful deliberation, we have made the decision to completely suspend our service in Russia until further notice. This means users will not be able to access Pixabay from Russia,” a Pixabay spokesperson said.
The company emphasized that this would have a great impact on Russian users, including those who do not support the war, but Pixabay is convinced that it was the right decision to demonstrate support for Ukraine and the Ukrainian people in this way.
As reported, on the eve of the service for graphic design Canva also announced that it was coming from the Russian market and disabled access to users from the Russian Federation.
