At the moment, three banks issue payment cards for mobilized Russian citizens – VTB, PSB and Sberbank, Kommersant writes on Monday, October 3.
The availability of documents to identify the client is the main condition for issuing a card.
Earlier on Monday, the committee of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation supported the law on credit holidays for consumer and mortgage loans and mobilized loans. If the law is adopted, mobilized, contract soldiers and other participants in the SVO will be able to suspend the performance of their obligations under a loan or loan agreement concluded before the day of their mobilization or signing of the contract. The same right is granted to members of their families who have issued a loan or loan before such date.
On September 26, Sergey Vakulin, a specialist in information network and computer security, spoke about a new type of fraud against the backdrop of mobilization. He explained that when a user fills in a username and password on a phishing site, the attackers gain access to the account and send messages with fake information that the owner of this page died in Ukraine. As the expert noted, scammers use real photographs of documents. This is done to destabilize the situation in society and sow panic against the background of the partial mobilization announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin in the country on September 21.
The head of state stressed that partial mobilization is needed to protect Russia, its sovereignty, territorial integrity and ensure the safety of citizens.
Russians called up for military service by mobilization will receive the status, payments and all social guarantees of military personnel serving under a contract.

On February 21, Putin signed the relevant decrees.
