On June 20, during a meeting between the government and business community, President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky said that the ban on gambling should be canceled. President of Ukraine believes that it is necessary to legalize businesses like gambling and sale of land so citizens can freely decide how to use their property.
“Ukraine needs to get rid of post-Soviet naphthalene regulation, which was introduced for a Soviet planned economy. The ban for an adult to freely dispose of his property, sale of land, currencies, or a ban to freely engage in activities that do not harm others, for example, legal gambling . All these bans should be lifted “, the President said.
It is worth noting that Gambling in Ukraine was made illegal in 2009.
