In August, at a business forum in Istanbul, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced his intention to legalize gambling business in Ukraine.
Everything quickly got over from words to deeds. And today the Verkhovna Rada has registered 8 bills on the legalization of the gambling business. In addition to the government version of the bill No.2285 "On State Regulation of Activities for the Organization and Conducting of Gambling", 7 more alternative bills have been developed (from 2285-1 to 2285-7).
The other day, the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Dmitry Razumkov, said that, perhaps, the parliament will consider bills on the gambling business as early as the next plenary week (December 3-6).
Taking into account that Volodymyr Zelenskyy instructed to pass the law until December inclusive, there is a reason to believe that the situation will soon be resolved.
In the meantime, we invite you to refresh your memory of the chronology of the most important events related to the legalization of the gambling business in Ukraine, and read the comments of experts. The most important news is published on the GamingPost website in the "Special Project" section.
