Avakov Urges Rada To Adopt Law On Gambling Business As Soon As Possible

Interior Minister Arsen Avakov urges the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to adopt a law on gambling business as soon as possible.

He gave the position on his page in Facebook, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to the interior minister, absence of the legislative regulation of the gambling business causes loss of potential USD 300 million of taxes.

"I am urging the Verkhovna Rada to consider as soon as possible draft laws and adopt any of them to provide rules, restrictions on the market and to return this shadow money flow under the control of the State! We need this tax money!" he wrote.

He notes that the operation of lottery companies MSL and Patriot has become illegal in Ukraine following sanctions imposed by the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, as the companies have beneficiaries in Russia.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Finance Ministry of Ukraine has drafted a bill on gambling business.
