blocked from Russia by

Hello! Could you please unblock for Russia?


We are not blocking Russia, rather Russia is blocking There’s nothing we can do about that

I’m able to ping and connect to 80 port with curl, but not with https. It looks like ban on your side.

Also I’ve tried other Russia providers and invent kde org works fine. So some providers are blocked. Rostelecom in my example. This provider is kinda huge.

Ah, interesting.
invent kde org resolves to which is some sort of hetzner gateway (and has many sites), so might be blocked by both sides, hm.

Could you please ask hetzner about ip? (or range) if it is blocked or not? (I’ll ask also, but they’ll answer to you faster because you’re client).


Hetzner declined to check it because I’m not a client. :frowning:

just posting a comment because i’m having the same problem. I use a local ISP and cannot access too, but it works with my mobile provider. I emailed the ISP and they said it is a ban on your side and provided the results of the ping monitoring (Free site availability checks all over the world: Ping-Admin.Com - web site and server monitoring. Site availability checks). It indicates that not all regions and not all providers are blocked, in fact, I think that the majority of them has access. It’s sad because I want to start contributing to KDE :frowning:

By the way, all other KDE websites and subdomains work just fine. It seems that only Invent is affected, which is kind of a huge issue anyway. And the category for reporting the issues/bugs for still doesn’t exist on Invent was also accessible about a month ago for me. That means the problem is fairly recent.

When I check the internet censorship (, I also check that was blocked definitely in Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg, and other cities), but the other countries (US, Germany, etc.) are still not blocking the website though.
