With the ongoing brutal Russian invasion of Ukraine, many more companies are taking action and now GOG has made a big announcement with their store.
Here's the statement they provided about the decision to suspend activities in Russia and Belarus
In light of the Russian military invasion in our neighboring country of Ukraine, until further notice, we made the decision to halt all sales in Russia and Belarus.
Effective March 3rd, 2022, we suspend sales of all games distributed on the GOG platform on the territories of Russia and Belarus. While buying products on GOG is not possible, users from the affected territories can still log in to their accounts and keep access to purchased items.
The entire CD PROJEKT Group stands firm with the people of Ukraine. While we are not a political entity capable of directly influencing state matters, and don’t aspire to be one, we do believe that commercial entities, when united, have the power to inspire global change in the hearts and minds of ordinary people. We know that players in Russia and Belarus, individuals who have nothing to do with the invasion of Ukraine, will be impacted by this decision, but with this action we wish to further galvanize the global community to speak about what is going on in the heart of Europe.
GOG has also recently, which I missed (sorry!), been helping a few developers give 100% of the sales money to charity. This includes games like This War of Mine, Slipways, MouseCraft and more. It's not up for much longer though.
