Google Play banned developers from uploading and update paid apps in Russia

Google Play store banned downloading and updating paid apps in Russia. Previously purchased software will continue to work.

Those developers whose services provide “critical services” are advised to remove subscriptions or make the application completely free.

In March due to problems with payment services Google has disabled the ability to purchase and pay for subscriptions in the Play Store. Then only users suffered from this, and the new solution will also affect developers. Until May 5, they were still able to download new paid products.
