The parliamentary committee on finance, tax and customs policy recommended the Parliament of Ukraine to support bill No. 2285-d on the legalization of gambling. This is stated in the message of the party “Servant of the people” in Telegram.
According to the head of the committee Daniil Getmantsev, gambling in Ukraine will not work under the licenses of state lotteries.
“Firstly, we propose to raise the age of players from 18 to 21 years old. Secondly, it is imperative to remove the gaming halls from the streets,” he said.
The head of the committee also added that the bill will be significantly improved by introducing deputy amendments before the second reading.
It is worth mentioning that in December 2019, the Verkhovna Rada failed to approve the previous version of the bill No. 2285-d on the legalization of gambling.
