Russian mobile operator Tele2 launched service payment for 17 foreign services in circumvention of sanctions that do not allow cross-border payments from Russia using Western payment systems, such as Visa or Mastercard, the company said on Friday.

To take advantage of the Tele2 offer, you need to purchase a “certificate” that allows you to make payments from your Tele2 account without commission. Some of the certificates are only available for paying for accounts registered in the United States, the operator notes, promising to explain how to create such an account.

You can pay for the following services: Amazon US, Twitch US, Fortnite, Xbox US, Nintendo eShop, Spotify US, PlayStation Store Card US, PlayStation Network US, PUBG Mobile, EA Play US, Mobile Legends, Minecraft, EA Games Origin Apex US, Free Fire, Roblox, Razer Gold Pins, Crossout.

Recall that after the start of a special military operation, the banking system of Russia, as a result of sanctions, was disabled from the main international payment systems, which led to the impossibility for many foreign services accept payment from citizens of the Russian Federation.
