n Ukraine the gambling business has been banned since June, 25th, 2009. According to the Government decision, the ban should proceed till acceptance of the special legislation allowing a casino in specially created zones. But the legislation was not accepted.

During the days of exhibition G2E Asia 2010 in Macau, a group of representatives from Ukrainian businesses have visited the event. Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Alsart Group Lyubov Loginova was a member of the delegation. The delegation also included several officials responsible for the development of gambling business in Ukraine. They visited the exhibition as well as local casinos - for a better understanding of the industry and the nuances of the organization of gambling in hotels.

"There are about 30 variants of the new gambling law now being considered by Ukrainian lawmakers - from the rational to the completely absurd", - commented the situation Lyubov Loginova, - "What will be the final version of the gambling laws of Ukraine - time will tell. One thing is certain: in this month or in the autumn 2010 it will be adopted.”
