I got notification from the Russia-based translation agency that their wire transfer to Ukraine from the German account (Baden-Wurttembergische Bank) was blocked due to some internal restrictions and pending regulations from the German authorities regarding transfers between Ukraine and Germany.

The account belongs to a Russian resident, natural person.

I suppose it's somehow related to sanctions, but the customer points out that other transfers to other countries were performed as usual.

Has anyone heard of it?

So it is May 6, 2014

Unfortunately this is due to the political tension between Germany and Russia. Let's just hope the issue will be solved soon and... peacefully.

It appears that a person based in Russia is currently not able to transfer money to Ukraine via their intermediary bank in Germany, but is still able to send money to other countries via the same bank.

I can only suggest that you ask some kind person in a third country if they would be willing to receive this payment and then transfer it to you.

Question May 6, 2014

Still the reason is not clear. It seems that there are some internal regulations as the transaction was blocked by the internal control system.
