RIVERWOODS, Illinois–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Discover and Diners Club International have no active partners in Belarus and Russia. Discover, Diners Club, Network Alliance Partners and PULSE® are not accepted in these countries and no cards are issued there.

Prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Discover/Diners Club International was in the process of establishing a Russian branch and registering it with the Central Bank of Russia as a foreign payment system operator. We have suspended all actions to pursue registration in Russia for the time being.

In addition to having already halted all transactions from sanctioned Russian banks on our network, we are suspending acceptance of cards issued by all Russian and Belarusian banks that operate on the Discover Global Network, including through its partner networks.
