Hi! UiPath Legal here.
Andra Ciorici is right on the reasoning and we are indeed trying to find a solution, while remaining compliant with applicable legislation. Pitching in with the answer in “legalese” stating UiPath’s position on the matter:
The use of the UiPath Cloud Platform is restricted in certain territories which must not have access to US and EU technology, in accordance with European Union and United States of America legislation, including export control laws (e.g. Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 of 5 May 2009; U.S. Export Administration Act of 1979).
At this time, Crimea, Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Syria are on the said international sanctions lists. Due to the association of Crimea’s IP with Ukraine’s IP, if you are a resident of Ukraine, your access to the UiPath Cloud Platform is restricted.
UiPath may be able to make available the on-premise version of the UiPath Platform if you are an Ukrainian resident, but live outside the territory of Crimea, if after performing a series of background checks, UiPath determines you are not subject to any nominal restrictions. In order for UiPath to perform these verifications, please contact @ovi in a private message and indicate the relevant identification information: name, surname and address, together with the description of the issue.
