Visa and MasterCard have stopped providing payment operation services for the clients of the bank AB Rossiya, which has been subjected to sanctions by the United States, the lending organization said in a statement.
"OJSC AB Rossiya announces that it has not imposed any restrictions on plastic card operations. However, the international payment systems Visa and MasterCard - without any notification - have stopped providing payment services for the bank's clients," the statement says.
U.S. President Barack Obama announced on Thursday that he had signed a document allowing sanctions to be imposed on Russia's key economic sectors.
