Hello, dear 81dojo community and developers! I am a novice to the game of shogi from Ukraine. As you have already heard, my country and all those who live here are suffering from a war started by russia, whose main goal is to kill us and destroy our culture. I started to get acquainted with this game during the constant shelling and incessant air raids alerts. I played with the bot in an app on my smartphone without even knowing how the pieces move. It helped me fight the fear of death while hiding for hours from shelling. At that time, the russian flag was hanging on the ruins of neighboring towns, and the miraculously surviving people were under occupation. After the first victories of Ukrainian troops, the cities began to be liberated from occupation and the first of the many war crimes committed by the russians were revealed to the entire civilized world. Subsequently, the International Criminal Court proved systematic cases of abduction of Ukrainian children for which the russian president was put on the wanted list by this Court. Today PACE recognized these crimes as genocide. The war is not over, the killing of people and the shelling of Ukraine by russians continue, and no one, including me, can be sure that they will survive. russian flag has become a symbol of death, and moscow has become the capital of the terrorist country. For these reasons, it pains me to go to your website and see moscow in the time zone category and this flag in the lobby. In addition, the belarusians played a similar role in this war and let Russian troops through their country into ours, and destructive missiles are flying from their territory at the population of Ukraine. It is convenient for the population of these countries to turn a blind eye to what is happening, but closed eyes bring us death. It is convenient for them to play under their own flag on this site and think that nothing is happening. But it hurts me, and I can't start the game here because of the constant atrocities that are happening in my country by the reason of the population of Ukraine wants to become a worthy member of the democratic and civilized world. Using the example of the chess site Chess.com (https://www.chess.com/article/view/on-the-invasion-of-ukraine) , I would like to ask 81dojo to remove the flags of russia and belarus, or to replace their flags with the example of that site. Also, to replace the moscow time zone with Kyiv time zone, as a symbol of the bastion of freedom and democracy. This will not only help me morally, but it is also another way to show the people of these countries that their inaction is killing us. And every small action, even the one I ask for in support of Ukraine, helps, especially now.
