Ordov expert explained US relief for payments with Mir cards in Kazakhstan

Maintenance of Russian Mir cards in Kazakhstan will allow Russians to solve everyday issues. So in a conversation withLentoy.ru» Director of the Higher School of Finance of the PRUE Plekhanov Konstantin Ordov responded to the relevant permission from the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the US Department of the Treasury (OFAC).

Banks in Kazakhstan and a number of other countries have stopped working with this system due to the risk of sanctions. Now the US has reversed the decision due to costs, the expert pointed out.

The integration of the Russian economy into the global economy is very high, which makes it necessary to make payments. However, these transactions began to go into the gray zone, and it became clear that some kind of legal channel should be left for transparent payments, Ordov added.

In his opinion, both local organizations and American companies became the initiators of such a step, faced with increased attention from the regulator.
