US sanctions against Russia hit the company Visa

181
The Visa payment system has announced the negative consequences of the introduction of sanctions against Russia by the United States. Reportedly, the volume of transactions in Russia has noticeably decreased, and the value of the company's shares fell by almost 5%.




“We have become hostages of US policy and the policy of Russia,” said Byron Pollitt, financial director of Visa, quoting InoTV.
According to him, the volume of operations in Russia has already decreased markedly. However, Pollitt does not lose hope that the company will continue to work in our country.

"In Russia, 100 has millions of customers, and no one, including Russians, can be interested in the fact that people can no longer use these credit cards," he stressed.

News about the decline in business activity of Visa in the Russian Federation caused a negative reaction in the financial markets: the company's shares fell by almost five percent, InoTV adds.

Pollitt's statement coincided with a statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin made during the plenary session of the first Media Forum of independent regional and local media in St. Petersburg.

On April 24, the Russian leader announced that the authorities did not take any steps to punish American payment systems Visa and MasterCard, which had previously suspended the servicing of cards of a number of banks due to sanctions. However, he added that this way trust is undermined, and companies risk losing the Russian market.

“We thought that the payment systems were depoliticized. It turns out that they are subject to strong political pressure and immediately bend under this pressure. And we have not created a national system, ”the president said.

            Quite right! The only absolutely self-sufficient state on planet Earth with a population of more than one million people - in the process of the development of human civilization - since the beginning of the twentieth century is Russia! (As a commentary on the "reasoning" of economists about who has a "cooler" capitalization - ub .. yudki). Russia, as soon as its authorities understand that their idol - the "bazaar economy" - is just ONE (!) Of the tools for organizing the economic (only!) System of the state, Russia will be able to feed sanctions and pin ... nu, and everyone who is alarmed clucks at their direction. Up to death.

        As soon as the Russian payment system starts working, I’ll immediately exchange enemy cards (I have both a visa and a mastercard) And Putin’s softness is not clear to me - the American creatures allow themselves to chop off cards, and for some reason we won’t close the market for them.

          Putin does not resort to loud statements and actions. Will do everything that needs to be done, but quietly. Anyone who understands understands that Visa has already received a black mark.

          he does not impose his point of view and does not indicate what to do with his cards, because This is already a personal matter of the card holder, in my opinion this is correct.

          UEC for example will pull visa holders and masters, especially in light of recent events.

          the question is different, the quote: "how? will it start working? The Russian payment system?"

          It is necessary to adequately relate to this situation, since basically all banks work with a visa and a mastercard! If they can be blocked, a collapse can begin, our people will suffer financially, since most of them get their salaries through electronic cards, a visa and a mastercard. Here it is necessary to correctly approach this issue, gradually transfer citizens to a national electronic card, and then you can strangle an overseas snake! am

And how do you suffer financially? No way! And the banks will be rebuilt, there would be political will! And these foreign cards will be simply out of work! Unnecessary! For us.

              Not everything is so simple, but ATMs are all set up, and shops .... therefore, there is no need to rush into words, it is necessary to prepare everything systematically before the end of the year, and then transfer all state enterprises with salaries to the national payment system.

            Speak everything correctly and it will be possible to "strangle" the "snake" without even straining too much. It will be economically profitable for Russian enterprises to switch to the nat. boards. system, and the more the US will "tighten" the sanctions, the more the process will accelerate. There is no silver lining.

      Well, you don't need to evaluate them ... but what needs to be done is to calculate the moves of our "sworn friends" in advance and prepare in advance to minimize their consequences.
      in fact, matryosnikov has many more opportunities to make us nasty than we do to them ... But the main thing for Russia now is to demonstrate the stability of its political system and save on Western actions. Not taking sharp steps back. This in itself will be a crushing blow to the West, as it will show the rest of the world that the West is no longer so strong and significant that it will bring new allies to our camp. This means new resources and markets, which again will make us even stronger, and the matri.asni.kov weaker.

        Yes, there are many opportunities, but provided that the mattresses are supported by European business and they don’t really want to follow the government’s lead. Well, American economic sanctions are not entirely legal. Russia is a WTO country. Moreover, there are no sanctions yet and everything that happens against the background sanctions statement

            1 It is logical to transfer the salaries of all state employees and all electronic payments bypassing the VISA scheme. Leaving plastic cards only for traveling abroad and payments to foreign banks.
            2 After working out the national mechanism of electronic payment, agree on the extension of its mechanism to such countries as Belarus, Kazakhstan (in certain circumstances, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan can be invited here) by offering them a share in the payment system.
            3 To invite countries such as China, Venezuela, Iran and several others to share this system
            Perhaps this is an adventurous plan, in that part of which concerns further expansion, but it is time to bend the Americans back!

Of course, the Visa card will be needed, but only for those who travel abroad for a short time, on vacation, on a tour, for treatment, or on a visit. In this case, it will be used as a condom, bought, used - and thrown away!

        And the national payment card still needs to establish itself in the global payment space so that it can be used abroad.
        The problem wasthat Visa has blocked the servicing of its cards issued under the sanctions of Russian banks, it is abroad. In the country, money can be obtained from these cards.

            In UEC cards, the application M / Chip4 of the international payment system MasterCard is used.
            What is M / Chip4? This is not a software product or chip, it is a certain application format that an ATM and a card understand. The format cannot be selected and cannot be given. It is open, it can be used either legally or illegally. We have an agreement with MasterCard, which implies an exhaustive list of reasons why it can be terminated immediately, and these reasons are mainly related to the fact that we either do not pay or go bankrupt. If it is terminated for all other reasons, including as directed above (for political reasons), termination is initiated by MasterCard. For such termination, a very significant transition period of almost two years has been established.
            Now the PRO100 payment system has a unique application - it is an ID application, which can also be used to make payment transactions. It is slightly more complex than M / Chip4. It is more difficult for banks to connect to it. This application can be installed on cards, on UEC it is by default. It is not yet planned to install it on bank cards that will be issued.
            ID-application is an analogue of M / Chip4, only more modern, it supports various kinds of contactless payments, and the patent for it belongs to us. He is Russian and certified by the FSB, is placed on a Russian chip, and this application will be bet on strategic.
            Question: - Maybe you should immediately launch a new system using Russian development?
            It is not suitable for a quick start because it is more difficult for banks to connect to it. All those who work with cards work with MasterCard, with "PRO100", consider that they are already working. This is more difficult. There is a driver for it - it is called an electronic passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation. It is planned to use an electronic passport as a contactless means of payment. And there won't be any M / Chip4 on it, only an ID application.

          You misunderstood about the cards. When these cards are circulated inside Russia, the Americans cut the coupons, not us. We don’t support their finances with this, because the percentage of turnover goes directly into their pocket! And the turnover is 90 percent of the money supply in Russia, which is served by the American system. We would also have to nationalize our native Bank and pick up gold from Fort Knox! As the French did in their time. We ourselves are able to store our gold! And dispose of it at their discretion, and not as Uncle Sam will allow!

      the leader may not foresee (which is unlikely), but now (based on recent events with MasterCard and Visa) the people (and especially people who understand in economic relations) have decided to play it safe. as a result, the "mattress makers" made themselves one more "headache"

      As soon as our Russian payment system is launched, there will be no need to take any steps to punish or sanction American payment systems! Our system will work, and "Visa" and "Master Kart" will be softly kicked out of Russia! Without loud-voiced sanctions, the Americans will get a good blow to the pig!

        3 years ago, when GDP was the prime minister, the government submitted a bill to the State Duma in which there was a whole chapter on payment systems. The chapter was written in detail about the activities of payment systems; they were to create contact centers in Russia through which all payments would go. The law was passed on first reading. Before the second reading, there was a call from the US Embassy to all factions, and this chapter in the second reading was completely excluded from the law. Here you have the work of 5 columns in power and the US Embassy.
        And if the law were passed, many sanctions would now be just FICTION.

    Each stick has two ends. And striking Russia with one end, one should not think that the second will not come. We have already gone through so much in Russia that we cannot be frightened with sanctions, but as the saying goes, "well-fed" Europe will not like it. They forgot how to sit without gas, water and food. And everything goes to this. At the first signs of a crisis, Europe itself on a silver platter will hand over Ukraine to Russia, and will give all the junta if they are not pulled off in the United States. The United States is far away, Russia is close, so the sanctions are thrashing in both directions, and Banana Abramich laughs at the EU on the sly.

    For that fought for it and ran.
    The echo of the fact that a company can at any time, at the direction of politicians, stop service, will cost this payment system dearly. It's not even about Russia, but in principle, this is a sign to all other countries and individual citizens. Business reputation is built up over the years, and you can lose it overnight. The management should be smarter. Such systems should work according to the principle "Nothing personal - just business", who does not understand this is the loser.
    A national payment system is simply necessary from any point of view, and especially for the Armed Forces.
    When they introduced the transfer of salaries to VTB 24 debit cards (I note without any competition) I asked several questions to the management:
    1. Do you understand that the entire composition of the RF Armed Forces will be known to a probable adversary, the servers of payment systems are located abroad ???
    2. The system of field banks no longer works in case of WAR, from which ATM in the area of ​​military operations will it withdraw money ???
    3. How the family of a person who has gone off on an alarm will receive money, where will he issue a power of attorney to them and how will he transfer it ???
    4. And if the card is blocked (any reasons ... including how it happened now with the American payment systems Visa and MasterCard), what should a person do in a war ???

    My simple, far from the most difficult questions caused a negative reaction and remained unanswered.

        Surveillance then goes through the Internet and cellular communications channels and each person sees in full view and through payment systems his condition is taken into account. That is, demons overwhelmed the whole world in full.
        And you need to transfer all modems and network hubs to their own with their own chips and dips. It’s better to control your Internet and you need to do more of your servers so that they work less through foreign ones.

    You need to quickly create a payment system. Issue and replace cards. Loop the process of payments through our banks. And if foreigners want to use their Visa cards, then profits should go to our treasury.
    I think We’ll still hear a squeak of a mouse with a collapse of the company's shares.

      Apparently, it slowly begins to reach:On Friday, US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew admitted that sanctions against Russia are harming American and European businesses. The words of the US Treasury Secretary only confirmed what the Russian side has been saying for a long time. Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, as well as many officials, deputies and large business representatives, have repeatedly emphasized that the sanctions imposed on Russia by the US and the EU will boomerang the initiators of these restrictions.
      Germany and Latvia agree with this. very In general, the European Union "has no tools, no desire, no common foreign policy" for sanctions against Russia. winked

    "The Visa payment system has announced the negative consequences of the imposition of sanctions against Russia by the US. As reported, the volume of transactions in Russia has significantly decreased, and the value of the company's shares fell by almost 5%."

    Well, that's not right. And how much will fall when they introduce their payment system in Russia.
    "Glazyev proposed to reduce dependence on the dollar in Russia.
    Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Sergey Glazyev proposed a plan of 15 actions to protect the Russian economy in response to a possible expansion of sanctions by the United States and the European Union ...
    According to the publication, the Glazyev’s plan has two objectives: to quickly respond to sanctions, and then minimize Russia's dependence on the outside world. It is necessary to reduce the circulation of the dollar in the Russian economy, and the changes should also affect financial operations in the public sector, and private companies, and even the population.

    First of all, Vladimir Putin's advisor proposes to withdraw all assets and accounts in euros and dollars from NATO countries to neutral ones, as well as to carry out an advanced sale of bonds of NATO countries. The Bank of Russia, in turn, must quickly reduce dollar instruments and get rid of government bonds of countries that have declared support for sanctions against Russia. "

    The echo of the fact that a company can at any time, at the direction of politicians, stop service, will cost this payment system dearly. It's not even about Russia, but in principle, this is a sign to all other countries and individual citizens. Business reputation is built up over the years, and you can lose it overnight. The management should be smarter. Such systems should work according to the principle "Nothing personal - just business", who does not understand this is the loser.
    A national payment system is simply necessary from any point of view, and especially for the Armed Forces.
    When they introduced the transfer of salaries to VTB 24 debit cards (I note without any competition) I asked several questions to the management:
    1. Do you understand that the entire composition of the RF Armed Forces will be known to a probable adversary, the servers of payment systems are located abroad ???
    2. The system of field banks no longer works in case of WAR, from which ATM in the area of ​​military operations will it withdraw money ???
    3. How the family of a person who has gone off on an alarm will receive money, where will he issue a power of attorney to them and how will he transfer it ???
    4. And if the card is blocked (any reasons ... including how it happened now with the American payment systems Visa and MasterCard), what should a person do in a war ???

    My simple, far from the most difficult questions caused a negative reaction and remained unanswered.

    Cards are cards, but the main thing in protecting against US sanctions is to take our Central Bank out of the control of the US Federal Reserve and make it state-owned, then switch to settlements with all "partners" in rubles or national currency - this will be the answer to the "sanctions" and we'll see how the banana lover and his real owners will like it.
