PayPal Not Coming Yet

International payment system PayPal will not start money transfers to Russia and Ukraine in September as earlier reported, the company said in a statement.

New tariffs for money transfers effective Sept. 24 were published on the company's web site a week ago. Russia and Ukraine were included on the list of countries for payment reception by mistake. "This mistake has been corrected," the company said.

PayPal is owned by Internet auction service eBay and started operations with Russian users in 2006, but with restrictions. Russian residents wishing to sell something through eBay are forced to use foreign intermediary services, which take commissions on transfers.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
