Creative idea

Putin started a war in Ukraine and with it draconic censorship and propaganda. Lied about the atrocities and called an all-out war just a Special Military Operation. Blocked Social Media plus 2,500 news websites operating in Russia. As Kremlin's censorship intensified, Tinder continued to operate normally. By using Tinder’s Passport, we could bypass the censorship and show Russians the truth about the war. We launched Special Love Operation, an invitation to outsmart Putin’s censorship. By simply changing the location on Tinder to anywhere in Russia, anyone can show Russians pictures and messages about the tragedy of Ukraine.
