Grammarly has suspended service in Russia and Belarus


In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which has included attacks across the Belarusian border, we have made the decision to suspend service in Russia and Belarus.

Affected paying customers may request a refund for the unused portion of their subscriptions. Please note that as a result of international sanctions, there may be delays, and we cannot guarantee receipt of the funds.

Early in the morning of February 24, Russia launched missile strikes on Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine—the beginning of an unprovoked, full-scale invasion. 

We are a company with a deep connection to Ukraine. Grammarly was founded in Ukraine, and we have many team members who call Ukraine home. The Russian attacks are horrific atrocities.

Misleading videos and images, along with false news stories, are circulating online and on social media. We urge you to seek the truth from trustworthy, fact-checked sources. 

If you’re reading news in English, we encourage you to rely only on credible sources to stay informed. Consider verifying your source with a respected journalism organization, such as Nieman Lab.

It is our hope that the war ends quickly with the recognition of Ukraine as a free and independent nation.
