GitHub restricts access to accounts in multiple countries and regions such as Crimea, Cuba, North Korea, Iran and Syria

On July 29th, based on US trade policy implications, GitHub restricted access to accounts from multiple countries and regions, including Crimea, Cuba, North Korea, Iran and Syria. According to a description of the posting of a post on the ycombinator by a Russian developer, Anatoliy Kashkin, who settled in Crimea, he received an official GitHub notice informing him of US trade control law restrictions and restrictions on user accounts. Anatoliy is not the only developer affected, and his friends in Crimea are also subject to sanctions-related accounts. Another Iranian developer, Hamed Saeedi, also published a blog post saying that GitHub banned his account and could not access the private warehouse and issued a petition that he is developing nuclear weapons.
