Avoiding unnecessary risks is productive. It's one of the ways in which
projects and organisations stay afloat.

That is a mischaracterisation.
AFAICT, GitHub is not (in general) blocked *by* Crimea.
Rather, GitHub itself blocks users *in* Crimea (i.e. connecting from
Crimea) from using *some* GitHub features:
GitHub is not "big enough" to protect users *from GitHub itself*, nor
(given that it is headquartered in the USA) *from US Law*.

Again a mischaracterisation.
That issue didn't relate to GitHub being blocked *by* Iran.
Rather, GitHub previously blocked users *in* Iran (i.e. connecting from
Iran) from using some or all GitHub features.
(BTW, Nat Friedman isn't GitHub's CEO anymore:
Also, I'm not sure he's Jewish, nor why that would be relevant.)

Codeberg and SourceHut both seem to be better than GitHub on this front.
