According to Elena Shulyak, who is representative of the Cabinet in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, if gambling is legalized, the state budget should receive revenues in the amount of at least 9 billion UAH.
“Please pay attention to the bill on state regulation of gambling. In October, the government submitted the bill No. 2285. This version provided for the receipt of 9 billion hryvnia to the state budget, and 4 billion have already been accounted for in a special fund for the purposes of medicine and education. Therefore, it is very important that alternative versions of bills would also be the same in terms of budget revenues,” said Shulyak.
It is also worth mentioning that on January 16 the parliament supported the draft law on gambling No. 2285-d as the basis for the first second reading.
