Wikipedia Donate banned from Russia?

Hello, Habr!

I went to the wikimediafoundation website today ( http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Ways_to_Give#creditdebit ) to drop a couple of dollars to support Wikipedia.

I chose a credit card as a means of payment, clicked on the Europe region and then chose Russia. As a result, I received the following message:



For a change, I decided to check other countries. I chose Ukraine - there are no problems, you can transfer funds. Similarly with other European countries.

What could it be? Crooked hands of Wikipedia developers? Or was Wikipedia dragged into a political conflict? Regardless of the correct answer, both results sadden me.
