Ukraine blocks nearly 70% of illegal gambling websites, says regulator
The Ukrainian regulator reports a successful reduction of illegal gambling operations in the country through a joint effort with other state bodies to combat money laundering
The Ukrainian regulator KRAIL has announced a decrease in the number of illegal gambling websites in the country.
Out of the 1,895 illegal gambling websites that were initially identified, only 727 of them are now offering unlicensed gambling. The decrease in the number of illegal gambling sites is the result of the regulator's work and cooperation with law enforcement.
Since the regulation of the market in 2020, Ukraine has been trying to reduce the number of illegal gambling operations active in the country.
When unlicensed gambling operations are detected, KRAIL transfers the information to the Bureau of Economic Security, which engages the National Centre for Operational-Technical Management of Telecommunications Networks to IP block the domains.
