As of a few hours, users in Russia are no longer able to add funds to their App Store and iTunes Store accounts using cards issued by Russian banks such as Alfa-Bank, Sber and Tinkoff. At the moment, some people can buy Apple gift cards and download content from both stores, but many others say they can’t complete their purchases even though they have available credit.

Apple has not yet formalized this decision, while for a few days the company has stopped sales of all hardware products in Russia.
