I know GitHub's trade controls affected/blocked users from Iran, Syria and Crimea. But, unfortunately, it's a law issue. As with any development platform, unfortunately we are subject to that.

It's a law issue from the US. I'm not living there so I would like to have a backup plan.

I also don't live there (I live in Brazil), but since I'm using an US-based platform, it makes me follow those restrictions.

But sure, we all need a backup plan for those situations! As you find one, it would be nice if you share with us.

AFIK, non US-Based Git platforms include Bitbucket. Then you have the option to self-host using
gitbucket or gitea.
