President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky said that some gambling licenses may be granted for free to promote construction of new hotels. Moreover, some gambling licenses will be issues at a lower price if a hotel expands the number of rooms. This was reported by the publication “Interfax-Ukraine”.
“We have five-star hotels in Ukraine, but they are very small. Thus, there is no way to open a casino there. We want hotels to be built. Perhaps if, for example, this is a boutique hotel, then maybe we will agree to give them licenses, which should cost a little less. If this is a very big brand hotel, we can give a license for free, just build us a hotel. The funds from the sale of licenses should go to sports, medicine or education,” Zelensky said at a press marathon. –
