Hi, happy New Years!
So I went to pay GERC in Odessa online and they said new law can't take foreign credit cards. I assume others have a way of dealing with this?

Yeah. Make a small PrivatBank  account and pay your bills that way.
Peace is the failure of the military to convince the government that it can and should kick its enemies ass.

You should be able to pay at many of those payment kiosks, no?

You're probably going to need to get a friend to cover for you until you return or just wait to pay it off until you return.
In Russia we only had two TV channels. Channel One was propaganda. Channel Two consisted of a KGB officer telling you: Turn back at once to Channel One. Yakov Smirnoff
