Gambling will become legal in Ukraine - at least that's what President Volodymyr Zelensky said during the business forum in Turkey.

According to the head of the state, the games of luck will be legalized in five-star hotels. According to him, it will become an impetus for the development of the tourist sector by the Black Sea coast.

The ban on gambling in Ukraine was imposed in 2009; the respective document is still effective.

As is known, the Ukrainian leader is in Turkey with the working visit.

In 2018, experts were skeptic about the prospects of legalizing gambling in Ukraine. The legislative ban on gambling on the Internet is not effective, and online casinos operate in the country quite freely. At that time, in 2018, the government promised the IMF to legalize this type of activity before the end of the year; the country's budget required additional tax deductions.
