Visa and MasterCard blocked Russian bank cards


UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Visa and MasterCard blocked the cards of Evrofinance Mosnarbank customers, as this company’s membership in international payment systems has been suspended.

The block applies to operations through Visa and MasterCard cards both in Russia and in other countries. Also, restrictions were imposed on the acceptance of these cards at ATMs, reported Interfax in Evrofinance Mosnarbank.

The bank intends to replace Visa and MasterCard cards with cards with the Mir payment system in the near future.

Earlier, the US Treasury added Evrofinance Mosnarbank to the sanctions list, suspecting him of links with Venezuelan state-owned oil company PDVSA.
