    How to change region on Steam?

    You know, when your location is Russia, you pay lesser price when buy game from Steam. I've been doing change my location when buy games. But lately I can't do that trick. Is steam changed? Or am I doing something wrong?

    I'm using Hideman for VPN. When I change my location to Russian and see Account Details > Update Store Country, I see Russia there. But when I select Russia, there aren't any confirmation button.

    According to Steam TOS:

    Friendly reminder. Do not use VPN if you're going to purchase a steam game. Steam has upgraded their security long time ago if their system detected that you are currently using a vpn while purchasing a game your account might get banned.

    PS: My friend tried this trick continuesly but his account got banned.
