The law on the legalization of the gambling business in Ukraine was nevertheless accepted by the Verkhovna Rada in the first reading. The bill was supported by 260 deputies, almost 90% of whom belong to the political party “Sluga Naroda”. It should be noted that representatives of political parties “Batkivshchyna”, “Golos”, “European Solidarity” and “Opposition Platform - For Life” categorically opposed the acception of the bill in this form.
As a reminder, the bill introduces a comprehensive regulation of the gambling market in Ukraine and an exclusive list of activities in the field of gambling permitted in Ukraine. However, the parliamentarians expect new amendments, which will certainly be introduced into this law by the time of the second reading.
