The Central Bank commented on the situation around payment systems Visa and Mastercard, which, as reported, can shut down its operations in Russia, reports RIA Novosti.

The press service of the regulator does not see reasons for concern and expressed confidence that all payment systems will continue its work in Russia in the former regime.

“Like today, domestic card transactions, including cards of international payment systems will be handled by the NPCs [National payment card system] within the Russian Federation, and operations outside the country — international payment systems”, — explained in the CBA.

Earlier, on 12 July, “Kommersant” reported that the state Duma is going to consider the bill, which places new requirements on the operation of payment systems.

It was noted that foreign systems will forbid to block payments banks that came under sanctions, which can lead to them pulling out of Russia and the limitations of the already released cards.
