Decision of gaming in Crimea to be made by August 1

    Crimea’s acting Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov told journalists on Friday on the sidelines of the International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg that a decision on the establishment of a gaming zone would be made by August. Aksyonov said that the zone would probably be located in Yalta, a Black Sea resort city in southern Crimea, but added that even there gambling establishments would be limited to a certain area. “We will listen to specialists,” he said. “We are interested in partners, including those who have experience in business like this and who can propose a model ready to use, so that we do not have to experiment on the Crimean republic. I think we will take the decision no later than by August 1.”
