From April 27, the MIR payment system introduces blocking of any payments to foreign electronic wallets. This is stated in the document sent to the banks. According to experts, this step is another stage in the strengthening of the fight against illegal gambling by the Russian authorities. To date, an electronic wallet is the only means of communication between a player and illegal online casinos in Russia. Recall that the intensification of the fight against illegal gambling in Russia has created problems for film pirates.
