The internet shutdown due to the protests in Belarus has led to negative impacts on IT business, including gaming software developers.
The total number of IT employees has reached 60,000, according to Forbes.ru. Disconnection of the Internet forced 500 executives of various companies to sign the letter, which says about the existing risks that all achievements in the field of high technologies may be lost.
Ivan Montik, founder of the SoftSwiss group of companies, reports that about 60 employees working from Belarus were relocated outside the country.
This situation greatly affects development. According to Ivan Montik, SoftSwiss has highly loaded systems and a large number of active players – about 400,000 in more than 60 projects: they need to be supported every minute, day and night. The expert clarifies that the company employs several hundred people in total in Belarus, and if the situation with Internet access does not change, all employees will have to move to another country.
