Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Sergei Demedyuk, the chief of the Ukrainian Cyber Police, says they are determined to curtail the activities of all online casinos in the country, including Parimatch. He stated this in an interview with local publication LIGA.net.

He kind of admitted that Parimatch continues to work in the country, in spite of a blanket ban on online casinos in Ukraine, but the police are finding ways to completely shut down the online casino. He explained: “We will find a solution to block Parimatch some day. We have closed their call centers in Ukraine, including Kyiv. And we continue this job.”

Demedyuk conceded that it is a difficult battle because it is not possible to monitor traffic and block illegal content at the legislative level. These online casinos host servers in countries where such activities are allowed.

Parimatch.com is one of the popular casino websites in Ukraine. It is an international bookmaker company providing sports betting and online casino services. The company was founded in 1995 in Kyiv.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has made a statement on the possible restoration of the gambling business in the country. The state budget missed billions of hryvnias since the ban of gambling business in Ukraine.

According to the statements of Zelensky, only a general outline of future gambling liberalisation can be formed. The statement was somewhat confusing. At first, Zelensky announced that gambling facilities would be located in five-star hotels, then added that the location would be limited to the southern gaming zone in Odesa. Considering that the state is now a smartphone, it seems that the president received a message about the legalisation of gambling from one device, but two different people typed in text.

On the eve of the election, some pro-government influence groups implemented several “approaches” to monopolise the legal lottery business. According to the experts, the legalisation of the gambling business in Ukraine can additionally bring up to 10 billion UAH (400 million USD) per year to the treasury.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has declared his intention to re-legalise gambling, in particular, to allow casinos in five-star hotels. He has promised to legalise the operations of casinos while attending the Ukrainian-Turkish business forum in Turkey.

“We will legalize gambling, namely, the operation of casinos in five-star hotels, which will stimulate the development of the region’s tourism cluster near the Black Sea. We also want to grow together here. Therefore, we want to see Turkish businesses as our partners rather than competitors,” Volodymyr Zelensky said.

All kinds of gambling activities were made illegal in Ukraine after the fire in a gambling hall killed nine people in 2009. In 2016, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine submitted to the Verkhovna Rada bill No. 4663 on the legalisation of gambling and a system of control over the organisation of casinos, betting and lotteries.

It is expected that the budget of Ukraine may receive an additional revenue of about UAH 10 billion (US$394.32 million) in case of gambling legalisation.
