OnlyFans, a subscription-based social media platform with adult content, has once again suspended payments to Russian creators since the beginning of the war in Ukraine. In a statement to Motherboard, the company said the decision has been made due to a "further tightening of payment restrictions to and from Russia."

A spokesperson added that the platform has been looking for new options to continue providing its services to creators impacted by the war over the past few months. However, it can no longer "properly serve" its Russian creator community:

As a result, we are taking steps to temporarily pause accounts where payments are received in Russia.

In February, shortly after Russia initiated a military intervention against Ukraine, OnlyFans blocked Russia-based creators from accessing the platform. It has also barred payments to sanctioned banks. Yet, a few days after the limitations came into force, OnlyFans restored full access for creators in all countries.

The company told Rolling Stone back then that it didn't suspend creator accounts "based on the creator's location." It is unclear what was the reason behind those updates but the latest move indicates that the London-based company doesn't want to deal with the whole Russian market for as long as sanctions take their toll.
