Verhovna Rada decided to delay the 2nd reading of the bill on gambling this Friday. MPs agreed to review other bills that have no serious amendments and conflicts of interest. Thus the 2nd reading will continue not earlier than on July 14, according to the schedule.
Still, the adoption of the law is expected very soon. Moreover, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy plans to visit the territory of the future gambling zone in Odessa region. The project of $ 2.5 billion called Dunaya plans to built a seaside resort city from the scratch. It will be located between Sasyk Lake and the Black Sea. The area for the gambling zone will cover 500 hectares, with more than 80 hotels and casinos.
