"Among other things, a draft law on the legalization of gambling in Ukraine was endorsed, which stipulates that gambling will be conducted in hotels only, with the use of gambling equipment with software that meets international standards," according to the government's portal.

It is reported the relevant decision was made at a government meeting on Sunday, September 29.
