This is a post from the old forums that is still unanswered: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20765927316
I know Blizzard Entertiment as a very consumer-friendly company. I also believe it’s important to state I’ve been informed that all income from purchases made in Ukraine are going directly to Blizzard Entertaiment. Taxes are also paid in the country purchases were made in. That makes RUB currency only nominal.
I do not mean to be negative or offensive in any shape or form. Please, bear with me.
Rubles are a currency of a country-aggressor that kills ukrainians on the east of Ukraine (and that’s quite literal, I had to deal with the consequences myself) and annexed part of the Ukraine’s territory. Even though I’m lucky enough to live in a relatively safe region, for obvious reasons I would like to not use or even see RUB as a currency I pay your services for.
So, given everything said above, having all the prices in RUB while being ukrainian is quite uncomforting, to say the least. It’s not just about my personal preference or feelings, it’s also about how Blizzard Entertiment company overall is percieved in Ukraine. I understand that Ukraine’s market and user base might not be big enough to justify any big changes finance-wise, but I also know Blizzard Entertiment is not just all about finances, but also about consumer experience and high quality service.
Is there anything possible to be done to resolve this situation globally? Such as change currency for Ukraine to USD, EUR or even UAH while preserving relative prices? Is there anything I can personally do to make this happen?
PS: yes, I did search for similar threads. But unfortunately did not find a response there from the Blizzard Entertaiment representative. It’s quite sensitive topic, so any response explaining possibilities would be greatly appreciated.

PS2: yes, I did try to contact support. They directed me here.
