In response to the unprovoked Russian aggression, we would like to express our great concern for the life and health of the people of Ukraine. At the same time, we want to emphasize that we cannot remain indifferent to this aggression. We do not agree with the war and acts of violence that Russia has directed against Ukraine.
Therefore, we decided that participation in competitions on the KnowledgePit platform will be unavailable for residents of Russia and to those who are affiliated with any Russian institutions or acknowledging any Russian scientific grants. This decision comes into force immediately and will be maintained for as long as the aggression continues.
As much as we cherish the idea of inclusiveness and value the talents and spirit that each individual participant brings to the contest community, we also believe that we are obliged to use the means available to us to stand against violence inflicted by the Russian state.
We would like to emphasize that war is never a solution and express our hope that it will end soon.
