On May 21 Ukrainian MPs will start review of amendments to the bill “On state regulation of the organization and conduct of gambling” (No. 2285-d), which has passed the 1st reading in January. This was announced by First Deputy Chairman of the Parliament Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy Yaroslav Zheleznyak.
In his post on Facebook, he noted: “According to the published agenda this Thursday, we are waiting for the start of consideration of the law on the legalization of gambling business 2285-d. It seems it has less than 3.5 thousand amendments. This is where you need about a month of consideration in the hall for the complete procedure.”
The law on the legalization of gambling comes into force from the moment of its adoption. However, financial control of the operators is possible only when the online monitoring system starts working. The launch of the monitoring system can take up to two years.
