In the short presentation by Honcharuk, the Prime Minister announced his backing of the bill. However, his task to convince the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s Parliament, will also support the bill that would legalize gambling in the country.
Additionally, he would like to see a civilized gambling system created which will then be taxed and potentially bring in substantial revenue to the state’s budget.
