As a leader in global, multilingual, and remote work, GFI’s talented team uses diverse perspectives and ideas from around the world to create a place where everyone can do their best work.

We strive to be inclusive and supportive in all ways to every member of our team; therefore it is with deep regret that we make this announcement.

As a result of the conflict in Ukraine, and as a result of US sanctions relevant to Russia, Belarus and the Donbas regions of Ukraine, GFI is suspending operations in Russia, Belarus, and the Donbas region of Ukraine. This includes pausing all services from contractors located in these regions, and the suspension of all business dealings, including financial transactions, any provision of services, support, license grants or entitlements either directly with end-user customers and with resellers and distributors located in the affected regions named above.

We do not take this lightly. While we understand the difficulty this may cause to contractors in the sanctioned regions, we will support their eligibility to return once they meet the appropriate residency requirements or after the geopolitical situation changes in Russia, Belarus and the Donbas region of Ukraine.

Our sympathies and support go out to everyone affected by these catastrophic events and we look hopefully forward to the restoration of peace in the region.
