Freedom is an ability to make an own judgments on things with a follow-up decisions which are explained rather then following popular trends without even close understanding the subject.. I am using Qt from version 1.33, and was a customer of TrollTech since then.. But I hardly remember Qt in any way followed any political agenda. Out of curiosity can you announce full list of blocked countries, may be North Korea or Iran? Just wondering if you block Crimea users after 2014? There were hell of the wars and military conflicts around the world since 2000, and I don't think that it was a matter for Qt ever. I mean really, its open source thing, there are things like VPN, proxies.. we all here in IT world, practically it will mean nothing at all rather then adding oil in already started fire.. Declaring sanctions that way is nothing then escalating conflict, my view on this that in reallity its a demand of 'large scale' sponsors and companies supporting Qt, but do you truly think it has anything about freedom, democracy etc?It would be much better to say - listen, we are open source and prefer to stay out of politics as we know nothing about that, but we are company and majority of our top customers pushed such decision and we decided that our commonwealth is more important... I mean it could be good or bad but at least it will be true...RegardsYuri

    Yes, it's kind of hysterical. I don't understand what the Qt
      company wants to achieve in the end? What is the purpose?
      So far, it looks more like a clowning: "the circus is gone, but
      the clowns remain."
      Qt Company can't stick your tongue out of the USA ass? :)
    I had a higher opinion of Qt Company up to this point ...
     This is not serious somehow, some kind of kindergarten. LOL. :)

        As long as I can fetch sources I wouldn't take any actions.
        But anyways, bringing your own political preferences to the
          open source world rules is a quite hypocritical move.
        In the adult world, it doesn't matter if your community
          members / contributors have a skin tone, political or sexual
          preferences not like yours, or an IP address that belongs to
          some particular territory.

              It is because your IP is detected to be in a
                  country we do not allow downloads. If you are not able to access something
                  you have purchased then let me know and I will get
                  someone to get in touch with you directly about this.
                  Otherwise, for the time being, this IP block will be
                  in place.

                  I don't care. I need some
                    explanations here, at public dev ML.

                        I imagine you're using a russian IP address, so
                        this[1] should shed some light on the matter.
                        Kind regards,
