Valve Changes Gifting Policys For Steam
Valve has recently changed its policy to stop users from gifting games bought for cheap in one country to users in another country.

This recent change prevents users in Russia from buying games for cheap, then reselling those games for a higher price in other countries for a small margin. Apple announced it shuttered Russia's online store due to fluctuations in the value of the ruble which you can read about here.
