Ukraine is preparing a draft law on legalization of the lottery business. It is supposed that a part of profit made by companies will be used in public projects. The political expert Alexandra Reshmedilova commented on the state of this sphere and gave a piece of advice regarding actions of the government.
She wrote in her blog on the website “LIGABusinessInform” that ahead of a new law, rivalry on the Ukrainian lottery market was thriving: sanctions were imposed on a number of companies, so the market would belong to a monopolist – the Ukrainian national lottery. The political expert emphasizes that, as the history shows us, monopoly is a way to nowhere.
The specialist says that “M.S.L.” didn’t manage to get rid of sanctions even after initiating the examination of allegations.
Alexandra Reshmedilova thinks that the Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman has to intervene in the situation with “M.S.L.” and decide whether allegations against the company are justified. Elimination of such a large operator from the market will have a negative influence on the national budget partly depriving it of tax revenue.
