Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov has presented an initiative to regulate the operation of lotteries and gambling on the market to return the shadow money flow to the state supervision.

“… [There are] scratchcard lotteries, gambling machines disguised as Internet clubs and simply without any masks… Not to mention backstreet casinos. We regularly reveal them – two or three a month, sometimes with policemen patronizing them, sometimes with officials,” he said on Facebook on Thursday.

He said that bills setting restrictions, licensing and procedures are circulating in the rooms of the Finance Ministry and Verkhovna Rada.

“I appeal to the Verkhovna Rada to urgently discuss the bills and pass any bills giving rights and restrictions on the market and returning this shadow money flow to control of the state! We need these taxes! I assess the unpaid taxes to the budget from the gambling sector at near $300 million,” he said.

The minister also announced the new inspection of this segment.
