Gitlab is blocking me in Ukraine location

I found out that Gitlab blocks access for me to the site and the message I see in the browser says that the site owner is blocking access from my location.
I did not visit the site in the past two months, so, I found the problem only today.
I suspect it is due to the fact that Gitlab is blocking access for users from Russia and Belarus and somehow it affects my location too.
I’m not sure why the restriction is affecting me, since I’m in Ukraine.
Is there any way to solve the issue except by using a VPN or relocating to another country?
