Proposed Gambling Reforms Not Seem to Resonate Well in Ukraine, President Zelensky’s Ratings Down

Proposed Gambling Reforms Not Seem to Resonate Well in Ukraine, President Zelensky’s Ratings DownReading Time: < 1 minute

 

A recent public poll conducted by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology has revealed that the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky’s rating is down from 73% to 52% in just two months. Not-in-favour ratings also jumped from 7% to 19% in November. The series of reforms proposed by the president seems to have played against him.

President Zelensky has been a strong proponent of legalising gambling and recently Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers approved the government’s new Action Programme. The programme included a draft law which calls for the legalisation of gambling in the country.

The draft gambling law also calls for gambling operators to pay a license fee of UAH 38m for operating a casino in Kiev, UAH 25m for a casino in one of the four other cities with a population of a million or more and UAH 12.5m for a casino anywhere else.

The president speaking in favour of the gambling reforms has advocated that with regulated gambling markets there will be a decline in illegal gambling and also the funds received in tax from gambling operations would provide for social programmes.

Survey Reveals More Than 50% of English People Gambled in 2018

Survey Reveals More Than 50% of English People Gambled in 2018Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Health Survey for England 2018 has revealed that more than half of people aged 16 or older in England gambled at some point during last year. The results of the survey also showed that millions of people are overweight, drink too much alcohol, eat badly or fail to do enough exercise.

The survey showed that 53% of people had gambled in 2018, which included buying a lottery ticket, with 56% of men reporting that they had gambled against 49% of women. While the figures have fallen in recent years, the chief executive of NHS England, Simon Stevens, issued a warning not to infer the problems that gambling present had gone away.

“These new stats are a stark reminder of how common gambling is in our society and how easy it is to become addicted, particularly with the aggressive push into online gambling,” Stevens said.

“The NHS never stands still as health needs change, which is why we’re rolling out new specialist services to tackle mental ill health linked to gambling addiction, as part of our long-term plan. But it is high time that all these firms who spend many millions on marketing and advertising step up to the plate and take their responsibilities seriously,” Stevens added.

For this year’s study, 8178 adults and 2072 children (aged up to 15) were interviewed from households across England.
