Ukraine closes bank transactions from Russia ?
« on: December 13, 2016, 12:29:03 PM »
SC has a neighbour who has relatives who lives in Poltava, Ukraine

She sends them money regularly - but her bank has told her that Ukraine has blocked transactions from Russia

I was asked if I could send them Money from the UK - the neighbour putting dosh in my bank account  in Russia

Question - is this true ?

Ye gods. Might as well put it all on black..........

But Ukraine is daft enough to do such a thing.

And, wait for it...

THEY HAVE banned payments from most Russian banks as part of their sanctions against Russia... :laugh:

Idiots, imagine what problems they are now causing for Ukies working in RU, who send their salaries/parts thereof back home to support their families.. about 4.2 million of them..

Loss of income to Ukraine, bad for the economy, debt levels increasing, and, and, and...
