Hi all,
Want to buy some gold for World of Tanks using my Credit Card from but they use Wire Capital LTD which is based in St Petersburg,Russia but i don't want to risk violating the current EU sanctions against Russia and hence committing a illegal/criminal act.Anyone have any advice on what to do apart from using a Karma Kion prepaid card?

We're not a part of the EU so why would it matter?

We support the sanctions so we'd be going against the governments position.

On security only I wouldn't buy anything from a company using a Russia-based credit card processor.

solival: AFAIK WoT is Belarussia. It's different.

How does that explain Wire Capital LTD being in St Petersburg? Unless it's just a payment processing company and not a actual bank.
