Doesn't the map just show the location of the IP address of the purchaser? So if a customer signs in via a VPN, the location could show as Moscow, but the real location could be anywhere in the world? I thought that had been established in the past, when people were getting pins on the map that were apparently in the middle of the sea.

Don't get me wrong, as I would also like an opt out of sales to Russia, but Shutterstock have given financial aid to Ukranian contributors and are not taking on new contributors or customers from Russia.

Why all this negative criticism of Russia?

Probably because Russia is trying to invade another country?

And no, I'll not jump on your whataboutism bait. Doesn't change anything.

Unless you're in Russia, or you've specifically chosen to have your IP address show as being in Russia... then you won't have an IP address that shows you as being in Russia. And while some people outside of Russia may choose to have a Russian IP address, that's going to be very rare... unless you're Russian.

Oh, I just thought it was a random selection based upon the last server used. Thanks for the information.
