Does Monzo accept transfers from Russia at this point

Does Monzo accept transfers from Russia at this point, from a personal account in Unicredit bank?

Not 100% sure but seems rightly still on the sanctions list:

Correspondent banking relationships and sterling payments

The Regulations prohibit a UK credit or financial institution from establishing or continuing a correspondent banking relationship with a designated person (or a credit or financial institution which is owned or controlled by such a designated person). In this context, a “designated person” is a person designated for the purposes of regulation 17A.

The Regulations also prohibit a UK credit or financial institution from processing a payment (in any currency) to, from or via, a designated person, or a credit or financial institution owned or controlled by a designated person.

The Regulations make clear that, for the purposes of the prohibition in regulation 17A(2), processing does not include the initial crediting of a payment to an account which is in the name of a UK credit or financial institution (and not in the name of a customer).
