Apple Pay and Google Pay are closing some Russian customers

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has led to global condemnations and sanctions against some of its largest banks mean Russians can no longer access Apple Pay or Google Pay mobile payment apps.

According to the Central Bank of Russia (via Insider), cards issued by VTB Group, Sovcombank, Novikombank, Promsvyazbank and Otkritie can no longer be used with payment services from Apple and Google.
