Russian SL user here. The only legal way to cash out for Russians is PayPal, and it's ceased its operations in Russia about a week ago. So Linden Dollars have no real value for us anymore. Personally I used mine to cover the rent for my sim for a few more months in case the internet here gets cut off entirely.


After the blocking of PayPal, all Russian craters were deprived of the opportunity to receive money from sales in SL. For many of them, working in SL is their main and only job. In the chat of Russian creators PANIC. But out of sympathy and compassion for what is happening in Ukraine, Russian creators do not bring their problem into public discussion. PayPal was the only way to receive money in Russia from SL. Now this possibility is not available. And there is generally no opportunity to work with foreign customers. Many creators and their families are already left without a livelihood.
Some craters from Russia will continue to work, despite the sanctions and the lack of the ability to receive money. But if the problem is not solved, we will not be able to do this for a long time and will not be able to support our customers in the game as we have always done.

I feel sorry for the russian people who do not support Putin. However this is a much more serious and bigger issue. Its not personal attacks against all the russian people but a global squeeze on Russia's Putin to stop his insanity and genocide against the Ukraine.


of course, LL should immediately remove all Russians without exception - of course, those who earn a lot of money here - pretend sympathy for Ukraine - but when you talk to these people they say that they will win the war and laughs that, for example, he turns on the gas in his stove because he will boil water ... they are brainwashed with Putin's propaganda and they claim that we are lying and that Ukraine wanted to attack them - so they only defend themselves
