Please check out the update I just added to Lena's original post on Page 1. We are revisiting the updated documents in light of the comments shared here. In the meantime, you can go back to the old process using the updated Confirmation of Services agreement I added in the original post on Page 1. You can use that document and the "old" process for your wire transfer on 9/26.
I just got signed old Confirmation of service from the support.
Without any additional questions
Looks like we can use both old and new style for now.
I wonder why Upwork didn't mention it here

Just asked support right now - they said that will not sign old CoS. Have an idea - make a refund money to client before 26 Sept if Upwork will not do anything
I agree with refund idea to move funds to time when Upwork will clean up law questions against russian community. Currently I think we should ask Upwork to sign old docs vs new ones just because new docs completely illegal and written by unprofessional lawer in russian field of law. Old ones worked well w/o any issues with Alfabank.
Two updates which I received.
1. From my bank modulbank:
They won't accept old forms anymore. They are ok to accept new forms even with mistakes if I find a way how to fill it.
As they explain - the old docs were too rough and not accurate. New docs are much better, more concrete and more legal.
2. From upwork support:
They don't want to sign my clean copy of their form. Said to use the new pre-signed docs. When I said that it's impossible to use them, they answered this:
"I regret to say that we can only sign the original form that is approved by the legal management. In your case, you can either download the pre-signed new forms or use the old form without alterations. Rest assured that we will be improving the new forms soon so. Thank you for the feedback regarding this matter."
So there are only 5 days before automatic money transfer and we still have to solution....
HEY UPWORK ARE YOU GOING TO DO SOMETHING?!
