The sanctions included the YuMoney electronic payment service, which is part of theSberbank“. Companies were banned from making payments between physical and foreign firms for the next six months.
Earlier, last September, the service was called “Yandex.Money “and was renamed to” YuMoney “. Customers were informed of this in advance and added that the final name change will take place on December 15th.
But for some reason they decided not to report on the check by the Central Bank and further restrictions. Today, at the start of the ban, non-residents received letters with notifications that they did not expect.
Naturally, people faced problems that they could not prepare for in advance. Many non-residents used only this service for transactions.
Domestically, YuMoney will continue to provide services.
Representatives of the Central Bank of Russia have not been sitting still since the beginning of this year and continue to “fight” with foreign agents.
Formerly the Central Bank expanded the list of requirements for which account blocking can be carried out.
And from January 10 amendments come into force to the Federal Law “On combating legalization of proceeds from crime and financing of terrorism“, According to which control over the money turnover of Russians is tightened.
