The Government of Ukraine has shown signs that it is keen on updating its current gambling laws though the scope of laws are unclear. The Cabinet of Ministers in the country announced on Sunday that it had approved the new Action Program which will include a draft law for the legalization of gambling.
The plan is that
“gambling will be conducted exclusively on the territory of hotels, with use of gambling equipment with software that meets international standards.”
During the month of August, Ukrainian media reported that President Vladimir Zelensky aimed to push for a plan which would allow casinos in five star hotels. Ukraine abolished majority of gambling operations in 2009. Gamblers have no shortage however of internationally licensed gambling sites to use.
Previously there have been talks about legalizing gambling which have come to nothing. Zelensky however seems to be one who actually means action.
