US-based home rental company Airbnb is suspending all its operations in Russia and Belarus. The company’s Chief Executive Officer Brian Chesky has given this information by tweeting. Chesky announced that the company will suspend all operations in Russia and Belarus amid the current crisis in Ukraine. Recently, the CEO of the company had told that the company is working to provide free houses to 1 lakh refugees displaced from Ukraine.

Through a tweet, Chesky appealed to the people of Ukraine’s neighboring countries to help Airbnb provide homes to refugees. He said that we need people from nearby countries including Poland, Germany, Hungary and Romania who can offer us their homes. He told that everyone will be accommodated in these houses for free. Its expenses will be raised with help from Airbnb and donors.
