Ukrainian game developers want Steam to pay them soon

Many game developers in Ukraine and Russia won’t receive the Steam revenue they owe in March until sometime in April, or possibly later. Valve said its bank added new rules after Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, so it is currently unable to send funds to accounts in either country. Steam publishers with Ukrainian or Russian bank accounts will either have to wait for Valve to comply with the new rules — which the company says is working to collect and transmit new information requested by banks — or temporarily use foreign bank accounts.

“Due to the current environment, we are unable to send bank payments to Belarus, Russia and Ukraine,” Valve wrote in an email to Steam publishers two weeks ago.The news was posted on Twitter by Ukrainian game developer Stas Shostak, who posted a Number of games on Steam.
