Dushanbe Citi Bank stops accepting Mir cards

MOSCOW. Sept 27 (Interfax) - Dushanbe Citi Bank, one of the largest banks in Tajikistan, has stopped servicing the cards of Russia's Mir payment system for technical reasons, the lender said in a statement.

Mir cards are not accepted at bank machines or POS terminals, the bank said on its official Telegram channel.

Meanwhile, Uzbekistan's unified national processing center Uzcard said that it stopped servicing the Mir payment system on its infrastructure and the operation of Uzcard-Mir co-badged cards abroad on September 23. This decision was made due to the "performance of the necessary technical procedures on the part of the participant of the Uzcard payment system."

Earlier, Turkey's Isbank and DenizBank said they had stopped accepting Mir cards after a warning from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
