Valve Says It’s Dealing With Blocked Payments To Game Devs In Ukraine and Russia
Game developers in Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus are unable to receive their income.
Rapid Response | Sanctions and Export Controls Explained: What’s going on with Russia
The United States and its allies have released an unprecedented and sweeping set of sanctions and export controls in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. This includes blocking sanctions on most major Russian banks, asset freezes on Russian elites, and a broad set of restrictions on exports of technology to Russia. Over the weekend, we saw a direct hit on “Fortress Russia” with the announcement of sanctions on Russia’s central bank, along with removing select Russian banks from the SWIFT system and sanctions on Putin himself. The allies have avoided the energy sector, with the notable exception of sanctions related to Nord Stream 2.
Join CNAS on Wednesday, March 2, from 9:00AM to 10:00AM EST for a discussion of what these new sanctions and export controls mean, how they will impact the Russian and global economies, and what to expect next in the economic domain from the United States and allies. We will also examine how sanctions and export controls will be enforced and whether China can act as a spoiler to the strong, coordinated effort from the allies. Additional speakers to be confirmed.

Ukraine asks Xbox and PlayStation to give all of Russia the ban hammer
Ukraine’s Vice Prime Minister has asked PlayStation Xbox and the entire games industry to give all of Russia the ban hammer. Shortly after EA responded by removing all of the Russian teams and clubs from FIFA 22, FIFA mobile, and FIFA Online. NHL 22 was also given the same treatment and now other game companies might follow suit either blocking Russian players from accessing games or also removing the country for other sports games.
There is also a growing effort from a number of game developers to raise funds for humanitarian charities to aid Ukraine as it continues to be attacked, bombed, and invaded by Russia.

Kings and Generals animated historical documentary series on Modern Warfare continues with the aftermath of the first phase of the Russian Invasion of Ukraine in 2022 (https://youtu.be/yBZPE9o2gHU). Previously we talked about the build-up to the new stage of the Russo-Ukrainian War, how Putin’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine continued, and covered events between February 24th and April 7th, as we saw how Ukraine managed to win the first phase of the war. This set up the second phase of the war – battle of Donbas. In the previous video we covered the events of April of 2022 (https://youtu.be/K2N_fHKrWIg) including the sinking of the rocket cruiser Moskva – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvB2CPpdTMY, and how the conflict turned into the war of attrition in May (https://youtu.be/D-93q4GMFT0) and continued with Russia’s best month in June (https://youtu.be/SIm4mQihHdA). In the video dedicated to July – the 5th month of the war, we talked about the arrival of the HIMARS systems which strengthened Ukrainian positions and changed the war (https://youtu.be/WS0D0X8V6rg), while this video will focus on the events of August, as we will see how Russian logistics and manpower problems were worsened by the HIMARS strikes, the risk and intrigue around the Zaporizhia (Enerhodar) Nuclear Powerplant and the long expected beginning of the Ukrainian counter-offensive in Kherson (https://youtu.be/2hZoQ4xebGw). Previously we discussed the Kherson counteroffensive in the first 2 weeks of September and showed how the Ukrainian counteroffensive in Kharkiv Oblast – Balakliya-Izium counter-offensive succeeded, pushing the Russians across Oskil and Lyman (https://youtu.be/gJRjKuss_Co) In the second half of September, Ukraine liberated even more territory in Kherson (https://youtu.be/S7usqwT-ty4), while this video will talk about the events of the beginning of October, including the attack on the Crimean – Kerch bridge.
