Russian bookmakers will face new reforms
Starting next year, bookmakers in Russia will also transfer targeted deductions to domestic sports organizations from interactive bets, the president of the League of Stavok, Yuri Krasovsky, reports.Krasovsky also recalled that at the moment Russian bookmakers are the main sponsors of sporting events: Bookmakers will transfer funds received from interactive bets to support Russian sports. However, this will only happen next year. The draft law, according to which bookmakers will have to transfer funds for the development of Russian sports also from interactive bets, was submitted to the State Duma in March this year. However, in the fall it was sent for revision. Since the Committee on State Building and Legislation of the Russian Federation considered that the fines for non-payment of contributions are very high for domestic bookmakers. Recall that the State Duma of the Russian Federation approved a bill that, after coming into force, will completely ban bets on youth sports events on sweepstakes and bookmakers. The draft law was proposed by deputies from the Liberal Democratic Party.
