How to replace russian services: Ukrainian or foreign analogs

More than a month ago, russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. As a result, Ukrainians are renouncing russian goods and services en masse. The marketing sector also refuses to use the services of the aggressor country and switches to Ukrainian or foreign counterparts because the use of russian-made software is a sponsorship of the murders of compatriots. In this article, we will talk about  russian services and what alternatives are available to them.
