We very much regret that, due to the various financial and banking sanctions which have been imposed on Russia (and which are very likely to change at short notice), Gafta is unable to accept payment from, or on behalf of, any entity based in Russia at this time. We cannot, therefore, provide a place on this course for Russian entities at this time.
