By Huseyn Hasanov – Trend:

Customers of the branch of Russia's mobile operator MTS in Turkmenistan can, on the basis of an application, issue a refund of unused funds being kept on personal accounts, as well as funds for non-activated express payment cards, said the company in a message.

It should be reminded that Turkmentelecom, Turkmenistan’s state telecommunications company, disabled international and intercity communication, and internet access services for the Russian mobile operator MTS’ branch in the country.

MTS’ branch in Turkmenistan said in a press release that due to this, it had to suspend rendering communication services in the country starting from 00:00 (GMT +5) on Sept. 29.

“When you return money from your personal account, the subscriber number is saved, and you can use it after the resumption of services,” said the company.

As for the end of the second quarter of 2017, MTS rendered services to 1.7 million customers in Turkmenistan.
