The five-star Kharkiv Palace hotel, as well as the operator Vertex Hotel Group, are developing casino launch projects in their premises, as Interfax-Ukraine reports.

“We have been working on the casino project for a long time, it is necessary that the formation of the legislative framework comes to a logical conclusion. We have experience with potential investors on the use of our facilities. And this crisis does not stop these plans,” said Atis Zaharans, the general manager of Kharkiv Palace Hotel.

The facility has 171 rooms, three restaurants and large conference rooms.

"At present, we continue to work, but we have withdrawn part of the room fund to save money. We have only saved the rooms that are needed, we serve all guests through the room service, since all restaurants and bars are closed, as well as the spa center. Only a few numbers are busy, no more than a dozen or two," Zakharans said.

At the same time, the regional director of Vertex Hotel Group, Olena Varivoda, said that the company is also working on a project to open a casino in the hotel’s squares, without indicating which one.

"We have the opportunity to open a casino in the hotel. There is a project that we are working on, an additional service - a casino - in our area. Project work is underway to prepare this part of the hotel," she said.

As we reported, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine supported bill No. 2285-d ‘On the legalization of gambling’ as a basis.
