"The situation is extremely surprising and ugly. We have been fighting for so long for us to have information and technological independence, and this is happening as a result," said State Duma delegate Vladislav Reznik, who in 2014 hours rewritten. This happened after the sanctions were blocked by Visa and Mastercard, issued by the Bank "Russia" and "SMP Bank" – this cannot be repeated. The central bank spent 4.3 billion rubles. on the establishment of the National Payment Card System (NSPK), which forced the international payment systems to transfer processing activities within Russia. This had to protect such payments against sanctions: if Visa and Mastercard no longer serve a particular bank in the country, the transactions on their cards will still take place thanks to NSPK.
However, the story is still being repeated. On Wednesday, Eurofinance Mosnarbank informed customers that Visa and Mastercard had broken the service because of the sanctions and that the cards not only work abroad, but also in Russia. The Central Bank does not comment on this.
The processing of card transactions on the part of Eurofinance Mosnarbank is the responsibility of the external contractor, Kartstandart, who interacts with NSPK on behalf of the bank. "Kartstandart" even blocked domestic operations, the bank said.
Wines are on the side of the bank's contractor, the NPCS representative emphasized: card transactions are correctly processed by the NPCS, but do not receive permission from the bank on behalf of whom Cardstandart's processing takes place.
The representative of "Kartstandart" on the question of the reasons for the blocking only stated that the company carries out its activities in strict accordance with the rules for payment systems and agreements concluded with customers.
