The only possible variant is the Chinese payment system Union Pay. But the cards must be from non-sanctioned banks. For example, in April, one could use a Rosselkhozbank card for payments in Cyprus, and to get it, one had to pay 25,000 rubles, but today it may work and may not. In Cyprus, the cards of Zenit Bank, MTS Bank, and so on work - look carefully at the list of non-sanctioned banks. By the way, the MTS-Bank card costs only 6,500 rubles. You can pay with Union Pay cards only through payment terminals, as the system does not support online orders.
