International business has reeled from recent events in the world and in the economy after Russia was cut off from all kinds of services and connections with other countries. It is especially difficult for those companies that were directly tied to foreign countries and depended on receiving or sending money via SWIFT.

More than 40% of the market in Russia used Western Union, which from the beginning of April has stopped accepting and sending money transfers to Russia and Belarus. 


It has become difficult to receive and accept money in Russia. Difficulties arose due to the sanctions of foreign states and private companies:


  • A number of large Russian banks are disconnected from the SWIFT system.
  • Foreign payment systems have stopped servicing cards of Russian banks. Cross-border and foreign transactions in Visa, MasterCard and American Express systems are not available to Russians.
  • The large payment system Western Union which accounted for up to 40 percent of cross-border transfers ceased its activity in Russia.
  • Cards and accounts of Russians are not served by PayPal and Wise financial services. 


What about those who are strongly connected with the Russian market? There is a solution!

It’s no secret that in the last 10 years, fintech companies have taken over the banking industry with their opportunity and quick solutions.
