Hello. Is it possible to change the IP address of the site located on your hosting?   Current ip
This request is related to the fact that in the territory of Russia this ip address is blocked. When contacting relevant organizations answered that I appealed to your hosting to change the IP address.

IPs are assigned automatically so the best way to get a new IP address would be to take a snapshot of the droplet and then create a new droplet from that snapshot.

The new droplet will have a new IP address and if it is one that isn’t blocked in your country then you can use it and destroy the original droplet.

You can also create the droplet in a different region, as each region has different IP addresses as that may help with some of the automated blocks.
