Ubuntu developer Canonical ends Russian business
Ubuntu developer Canonical ends Russian business.
Canonical, the developer of Ubuntu, has announced that they have terminated their support and professional services for Russian companies, as well as their channel partnerships with Russian companies.
The announcement mentions that Canonical will not restrict access to security patches for Ubuntu users in Russia, as free software like Ubuntu, VPN technology, and Tor are very important for people who get news and seek dialogue.
They will use any Russian subscription revenue from such maintenance to humanitarian causes in Ukraine.
In addition, Canonical is actively supporting all colleagues affected by this war in order to maximize their financial, emotional and physical safety.
