Message from the Publisher

Russia’s unprovoked, barbarous invasion of Ukraine is a humanitarian
catastrophe, and unlike other 21st century wars in Congo, Chechnya and Syria,
it has impacted the payment card industry. Resulting sanctions affect the Visa,
Mastercard, American Express and Discover networks. Cardholders in Russia
can make Mir domestic card transactions, but travelers in Russia, as well as
Russian travelers and tourists outside the country, have been cut off from global brand credit and debit cards. Our issues 1210, 1209, 1202 and 1197 contain relevant data regarding issuing and acquiring in Russia and Ukraine.
