According to Daniil Getmantsev, the head of the Finance Committee of the Ukrainian Parliament, gambling can fund the country’s budget by UAH 4.5 billion in 2020 as a result of the legalization of gambling in the country.
“According to the Ministry of Finance, this year the state should receive UAH 4.5 billion from the gambling business. Illegal institutions that still exist today will lose from this law (on legalizing the gambling business),” Getmantsev said.
According to the experts, the Parliament will vote for the revised version of the bill 2285-d this January. The first plenary session in 2020 is scheduled for 14th of January.
