So google wifi is forcing me to update. But removed the app from my country’s appstore, rendering my device unusable. Good job, Google.

Does this mean that you effectively turned my $300 device into a brick?

This is bullshit. The phone app is the only way of configuring this device and now you locked me out of it?
So much for cloud products.

Still available in Russian Play Store

For those still encountering this issue on iOS, one workaround is to create a new Apple ID with country set to one of the "Approved" countries. Then you can login to that account to download the App, before switching back to your usual Apple ID on the app store. The Google WiFi app will remain on your phone, and if you wish to update it, you just need to login again to the newly created account temporarily on the app store and run the updates.
