Airbnb Stops Operating in Russia and Belarus

An online marketplace for lodging, primarily homestays for vacation rentals, and tourism activities, Airbnb stops operating in Belarus and Russia. 

"Airbnb has made the decision to suspend our operations in Russia and Belarus. This means that we will block calendars from accepting new bookings in both countries until further notice. We will also restrict users in Belarus and Russia from making new reservations as guests.", a representative for Airbnb told Insider.

CEO Brian Chesky further declared that the company will accomodate up to 100,000 Ukrainian refugees fleeing war.
