I would like to create something so then to get donations for it. The most popular version is PayPal. However, PayPal DOESN'T work with Ukraine! So I ask what are some systems like PayPal that are able to send money in Ukraine. All I need is for the donators to be able to pay donations with their Visa/Mastercard. Do you know something like that?

Bitcoin? Litecoin? Dogecoin? They all work.

As for credit cards... I'm not really that interested in them anymore, but look at World Pay. They might work.

Apparently, PayPal and eBay are not cluing anybody in as to why, but I found this:

Comment #5:
I think it is not PayPal who caused this, but an outdated but still active Ukrainian law (14.10.2004 N 485 ) which forbids Residents (resident: citizens and immigrants) of Ukraine to have financial or other value based accounts opened out of country borders. So you cannot have a "money account" on your "Paypal account".

There is a petition on Change.org, but I don't know how effective those things are.

PP is great - we NEED it to be able to buy drugs and arms safely in Mexico and then transfer it to Ukraine via. submarines, without the risk of being busted by cops.

I have heard that there are businesses over the border that can receive PayPal payments on your behalf, and then deposit to your account, but I can't possibly recommend one over another, or vouch for the safety of such a thing.

What a fool! That's what Darkcoin is for! :)

But seriously, that sucks not being able to even spend your own money.

It could also be an epic troll.
