     Free software means that the developers cannot decide who can use it
     and who cannot.  If we had the power to stop Russia from using a
     we would also have the power to anyone else from using it.
     That would not be free software.

   We could become uncivil and block people from downloading a free
   software program, but there are no such (as far as I know) ipchains
   blocklists on [6], so
   there is no reason to do so either.  We live in civil democracies, but
   Russia and Putin has invaded Ukraine.
   I have recently added Retro FM in Kyiv, Ukraine after discussions with
   Magnus ([7], when we saw that someone with a Russian
   IP address deliberatedly tried to remove Retro FM from the list of
   Ukrainian radio stations on [8], so we decided to loop
   censorship on Wikipedia and therefore published the station in GNOME
   Radio 16.0.6 for GNOME 42 to a global mirror of GNOME.
