The Verkhovna Rada Committee on Finance, Taxation and Customs Policy voted to liquidate the CRGL or Commission for Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries.

This was a unanimous decision. The Ministry of Digital Transformation plans to transfer the powers of the CRAIL.
The draft law includes some other important provisions to relocate the powers of the CRAIL.
First is the restrictions on gambling and advertising. This includes the inadmissibility of speculation on the topic of war and volunteering, and a ban on sponsorship. Next is the identifying additional tools to restrict visits to gambling facilities and participation in gambling for potentially vulnerable categories of the population during martial law.
Third is the improving of the tools for controlling the gambling business, which includes control purchases, and monitoring the Internet. Lastly, the establishing of additional criteria for license revocation, improving the requirements for flawless business reputation of officials to gambling organizers, and establishing requirements for gambling service providers.
Today, Verkhovna Rada should consider and support the draft law in the first and second readings. It will come info force once the president signs it. Nonetheless, there may be some obstacles.
The MP emphasized that all of this will work in practice only and only simultaneously with an effective fight against shadowing. Miscoding has been almost shut down, but dropships and krypto are still flying. Otherwise, the restrictions may push some people into the shadows, which is not the purpose of the law. Therefore, they will introduce regulations to further limit financial gateways.
On March 29, a petition of restrictions on online casinos appeared on the website of the President’s Office. It calls for restrictions on the gambling business. The petition was created by Pavlo Petrichenko. He is a soldier of the 59th Brigade. Petrichenko said that it was not moderated for 10 days. However, within a few hours, it gained thousand votes after its publication. It is required for consideration by the head of state.
