Visa Upholds Service

MOSCOW -- Visa International has told member banks worldwide to continue servicing transactions with Russian Visa credit cards, a Visa representative said Friday.

Visa had earlier stopped cash withdrawals on cards issued by Russian banks because the transactions had recently jumped by 100 to 150 times.

Meanwhile, a Europay International spokesman said although the payments association is examining the Russian financial crisis, it has not given its member banks any special instructions on settlements.
