This russian ecurrency still working fast and smoothly :RpS_smile:

This is one of the best options to deposit/withdrawal funds from russian brokers!

Most russian sites accept it and has very low fees so its a good choice! :RpS_wink:

And here we are, 4 years later, Ukraine is in full-blown "USA democratisation process" and Webmoney is alive and well, and used by, among others, many Chinese retail sites, including Aliexpress, so I believe it beat PayPal as well. :)

If my memory doesn't fail me it's not the first time they are in trouble. Guess they'd better leave Ukraine and save their name
