… Russia invaded Ukraine with a full-scale war. Our land has been shattering from explosions and shellings every day since that terrifying morning.
Ukraine’s second-largest city Kharkiv, where DataForSEO’s main office is located, now bears heavy scars of destruction. Russia’s missiles have killed numerous civilians, ruined multiple public and residential buildings, and continue to strike the city and its suburbs to this day.
As the citizens of Ukraine, we feel that it is our duty to do everything we can to help our country, support our people, sustain the Ukrainian economy and obstruct all business ties with Russia.
Within the first week of the invasion, we shut down access to Yandex SERP API, banned all users from Russia and Belarus, and removed these countries from all our APIs and databases.
During the first two months of the full-scale war, we supplied fuel to volunteers providing transfers to people evacuating from the frontline areas. We’ve also provided humanitarian aid to Kharkiv city, and assisted all of our teammates with relocation fully covering the first months’ expenses.
Now, we are donating 50% of our profits to official state initiatives and various charities such as the Come Back Alive Foundation.
We also regularly supply protective equipment, drones, medical kits, and more for our soldiers on the frontline. Besides that, we are providing special equipment and financial aid to the State Emergency Service.
From the beginning of the full-scale invasion, we’ve received lots of support from our customers and we’re forever grateful for that. Many of you have offered accommodation and office spaces for our team and asked how else you could help.
With this statement, we’d like to let you all know that by using DataForSEO services, you’re already helping Ukraine win sooner.
However, if you are willing to do more and save more lives, we’re asking you to go ahead.
