Plai stands with Ukraine 🇺🇦

It is hard to imagine that war could be possible in the 21st century. However, at 5 am on February 24, Russia began the full-scale military invasion of Ukraine. 

Plai was founded in Ukraine, and we are incredibly proud that most of our operations are based in Kyiv. At this minute, Russia attacks our houses and families, violently trying to steal our country. We are doing our best to support our team and country, and there are ways for you, our community, to help us. 

What does this situation mean for our users?

With regards to the use of our product - nothing. Although our office locates in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, we securely host all of our infrastructure and user data on Amazon Web Services. The cloud service server's physical location is outside Ukraine. You can find more information on how Plai collects and stores user data in the company's Privacy Policy.

All Plai team has left Kyiv and relocated to the safer regions of Ukraine or abroad. So, we continue to work and support you as usual.

How Plai stands with Ukraine

❌ No longer provides service to or accepts payments from Russian users.

❌ Bans new users from Russia from creating an account

✅ Support the Ukrainian army and volunteers, donating to multiple organizations and charities fighting for Ukraine.

✅ Supports Ukrainian economy by keep doing our business, developing (and soon releasing) new features and integrations for enterprises.

Some ways to help Ukraine

4. Donate to the trusted organization Come Back Alive:

One of the largest charity foundations in Ukraine that helps Ukrainian veterans and the military (by purchasing essential equipment like drones, night-vision goggles, and more).

5. Join Ukrainian IT Army.

The volunteers created a group in Telegram for fighting with Russian propaganda: blocking website resources and groups and spreading fake news. Instead, they help to spread trustworthy information about Russian-Ukrainein war globally. The group needs help of engineers, bloggers, opinion leaders, marketers, content managers and regular social network users.
