Deputy Finance Minister of Ukraine Sergey Marchenko stated that the legalization of gambling in the country is a problem, and Verkhovna Rada refuses to help solving it.
According to him, the power of the Ministry of Finance is not enough to solve the problem of illegal gambling and semi-legal lotteries. When the ministry officials prepared a number of decisions on regulation, the parliament did not support them.
Political expert Alexei Yakubin criticized Marchenko’s attitude. In his opinion, the official only wants to ensure that Ukraine will not legalize gambling in 2017. The Ministry of Finance accuses deputies of inaction just to hide personal interest in extending the "shadow status" of gambling business.
