Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Email Address Casino & games Ukraine legislature passes bill to legalise gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Ukraine’s legislature, the Verkhovna Rada, has passed a bill to regulate both land-based and online gambling in the country after a 248-95 vote at the second reading. Ukraine’s legislature, the Verkhovna Rada, has passed a bill to regulate both land-based and online gambling in the country after a 248-95 vote at the second reading.The bill, 2285-D was introduced by Oleg Marusyak as one of six alternatives to the reforms submitted by the Servant of the People Party-led government in Parliament in October 2019. Although it initially failed to pass at first reading in December of that year, it passed in another vote in January 2020 after some amendments including raising the legal age to gamble to 21.Online gambling, bookmaking and land-based casinos would all be legal under the bill, but casinos may only be located in hotels.The Rada has passed more than 100 of as-yet unpublished amendments in the weeks preceding the vote on the bill itself, after Deputies, mostly from opposition parties, presented more than 3,000 for consideration.Under the last published version of the bill, approved by the Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy for its second reading, licence fees for online gambling were set at UAH30.7m (£906,000/€1.0m/$1.1m) and will be paid when a licence is renewed every five years. Bookmakers’ licence fees were set at UAH70.8m while a flat fee UAH121.6m was set for casinos located in hotels in Ukraine’s capital Kyiv, with a UAH70.8m fee for casinos in hotels elsewhere.This version of the bill also sets out restrictions on the origin and ownership of businesses in the market. The bill stated that all operators and slot machine suppliers “must not be controlled by residents of an occupying state and/or the aggressor state in relation to Ukraine”.Sources confirmed to iGB that this refers to Russian-owned businesses, as clarified in other Ukrainian legislation. The clause also applies to businesses with Russian directors, heads of accounting or ultimate beneficial ownership (UBOs), though it does not appear to apply to suppliers other than land-based slots, such as igaming content providers.Casinos were previously banned from advertising their services online or using third-party marketing, including affiliation. However, this was removed at the committee stage.The version of the bill passed by the committee said the parliamentary Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy may appoint members of a Tender Commission, which then elects the chairman and members of the Gambling Commission.However, the legal committee of the Rada said that this is unconstitutional, as creation of a regulator is an executive function and a committee of the legislature does not have this power in its formation. It is not yet clear whether the Rada passed an amendment to address this.The Rada must now pass another act to setting out how the industry will be taxed. Currently, there are five different gambling tax bills for the Rada to consider.Last month, a new tax proposal for gambling, Bill 2713-D, was filed by Marusyak. This would set a 5% GGR tax on bookmaking, 10% for online gambling and for lotteries and 12.5% for slot machines. Although this bill appears the most likely to pass, it still must compete with four earlier bills, or the possibility of the Rada introducing another new tax bill.A bill jointly submitted by Marusyak and Marian Zablotskyi, Bill 2713, sets the tax rate for all gambling and lotteries at 25%. An alternative – 2713-1, submitted by Dmytro Natalukha – proposes a 7.5% GGR tax rate from bookmaking, 12.5% from online gambling and 22% from lotteries.A third, 2713-2, put forward by Oleksandr Dubinsky, also looks to establish a flat tax rate of 25% of GGR for all forms of gambling: online, land-based and lotteries. The final proposal, 2713-3, put forward by Artem Dubnov, would scrap specific gambling taxes entirely, with the government making money from the industry only through licence fees and normal business and income taxes.The bill would still need to be signed by President Volodymir Zelensky to come into effect. Zelensky has been a vocal supporter of regulated gambling in the past.In October 2019, Zelensky voiced his support for a government bill that would have allowed gambling only at hotels, which he said should help curtail the presence of illegal slot machines on the streets.After bill 2285-D was initially rejected, Zelensky announced he would begin to enforce Ukraine’s anti-gambling laws much more strictly. Since then, Ukrainian courts have ordered internet service providers to block access to many unlicensed igaming sites, including a list of 32 sites in February and 59 more in May.All gambling except state-run lotteries became illegal in Ukraine in 2009, after nine people were killed in a fire at a slots parlour in Dnipropetrovsk in the east of the nation, but the country has looked to reintroduce legal gambling since 2015, when a new bill to legalise and regulate gambling activities across the country was introduced.The country’s government had previously pledged in April 2017 to legalise gambling by 2018.

In 2006, the city of Bondy, in the suburbs of Paris, launched an urban renewal programme that applies to its northern neighbourhoods, beyond the Ourcq Canal. The area called the Noue Caillet where this building is located is typical of the post-World War II reconstruction. 2,023 flats where built between 1959 and 1964 in order to address the need for housing. They were high-rises that ranged from 2 to 13 floors. Yet they haven’t aged well and no longer respond to today’s urban stakes. Any improvement of the living environment of the inhabitants means an upgrading, a de-densification, an opening-up and integration to the urban fabric of these social housing neighbourhoods.Save this picture!© 11h45The Noue Caillet is a landlocked neighbourhood with degraded public spaces, yet it has quality facilities such as schools, a post office, day nurseries… In order to make it more attractive, the city has decided to pull down 362 social flats. The 50-flats building designed by Guérin & Pedroza replaces a 13-storey high-rise with 270 flats. As mentioned in the programme and in order to de-densify the area, the building covers only half of the former built-up area. The design of the main façades facing east and west present a division and various sequences that suggest that the building is a compound of residencies and not just a piling-up of boxes. Being a low-rise with only 6 floors produces the same effect. The building being set up on a north/south axis grants a maximum sunshine for each of all the flats which great quality lies in the fact that they opens in two or three directions.Save this picture!© 11h45To respond to various requests of the programme, the architects Guérin & Pedroza have opted for an architecture that is simple in that they went for a well-tried bioclimatic design. Passers-by and people living in the neighbourhood enjoy the sight of façades covered with a plain coating and wood, a soothing material, like the ground floor gardens may be. The sliding shutters animates the four sides of the building, depending on the weather and the time of the day.Save this picture!© 11h45The building has been tought as a residence divided into three. Each part has its own access and elevator. On each floor, two or four flats take place. The 5-bedroom flats are duplexes located on the ground so each has a garden as required in the programme. On the other floors, different kinds of flats are put together in order to mix all types of inhabitants. Each flat has its own balcony, terrace or garden that extend the living space to the exterior.Save this picture!© 11h45The building follows the norm of the green building standard called the BBC (low energy building) and has a 45 kWh/m2/year, that is 5 kW less that the level expected by the label. The building is compact and let the sunshine in so that its energy efficiency is good and ensures the inhabitants’ well-being. The exterior insulation reduces any thermal loss. Following a bioclimatic concept, all the flats can be naturally cross-ventilated. For a better summer comfort, the balconies bring shade and coolness. So do the wooden sliding shutters. In the sun heats the flats for free. These environnemental devices are completed with 34 solar thermal collectors (75 square metres) placed on the roof. They produce hot water. And for who can enjoy gardening, they can use the rainwater collected on the roofs.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessFish market in Bergen / Eder Biesel ArkitekterSelected ProjectsGreen Screen House / Hideo Kumaki Architect OfficeSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Seine-Saint-Denis, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Dairy-exec-retiringForty-one years is enough. So, the CEO of American Dairy Association, Indiana, Deb Osza, is calling it a career at the end of this year when she retires from her dairy checkoff work. Four decades is a long time, and Osza has seen the many changes during that period, primarily the shrinking of the industry.“We have fewer dairy farms operating in Indiana today than we did forty years ago, and even in terms of promotion, my area of expertise, we had four promotional offices in the state forty years ago, and today we have one,” she said. “So, there’s been consolidation throughout the industry, across the industry and across the country.”And even with that shrinkage, she feels very good about the future and the role the Indiana dairy checkoff organization will play.“I feel great about the strength of American Dairy Association, Indiana and our mission to spread the good nutrition news about milk and milk products, and also the good news about the work that farmers do in helping to feed a hungry world,” she told HAT. “I think we’re strong, we have a wonderful team, we have a young team. They’re very passionate about what they do.”As she plans her retirement, and it’s sure to include many outdoor activities, Osza will keep memories of Indiana’s dairy men and women close.“You know I think about several of the dairy farmers who have served as mentors to me. They have been very helpful to me in my career and I really do owe them a debt of gratitude. I will miss the people and I think that’s what most people say when they retire. I love what I do, I love the people, and they I will miss, but I have many friends that we’ll stay in touch with each other.”Best wishes to Deb Osza in her retirement and to her replacement, a 10-year member of the team at ADA Indiana, Jenni Browning.

The Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav was hearing the third bail application of accused Kuldeep Singh who was allegedly involved in the brutal murder of a young auto driver namely Babbu during NE Delhi Riots (February 2020). Arguments put forth by Bail Applicant He argued before the Court that he be granted bail on the ground of parity as two co-accused persons namely Jubair @ Zuber and Iqbal have recently been enlarged on bail by the Delhi High Court vide order(s) dated 09th December 2020. It was also argued by his counsel that he has not been specifically named in the FIR. eHis arrest in the matter was affected merely on the basis of disclosure statement of caucused. Further, it was argued that no recovery of any sort has been affected from him. The police never sought his custody remand in the matter and he is not seen in any CCTV footage/clipping. Significantly, it was also argued that there is an unexplained delay of about 81 days and 93 days in recording the statement of alleged eye witnesses Munna and Imran respectively. Court’s Observations The Court noted that the statement of the eye witness Munna was recorded on 18th May 2020, i.e after a humungous delay of about 83 days (the incident allegedly took place on 25th February 2020). The Court further observed that Munna had witnessed the incident in question on 25th February 2020 itself, however, he neither approached the local police station on the date of incident, i.e on 25th February 2020nor he made any call at number 100 on the said date and instead he went on to name the applicant for the first time during the course of recording of his statement under Section 161 Cr.P.C by the IO on 18th May 2020. The Court relied on the Apex Court’s decision in the matter of Prabhakar Tewari V/s State of UP & Anr.”, Criminal Appeal No.153/2020, wherein it was categorically held that if statements of witnesses is delayed by substantial time, particularly when the witnesses were available with the police, then it casts a doubt upon the prosecution story and the accused becomes entitled for bail. Importantly, the Court also observed that the identification of applicant by police officials (who were stated to be posted as Beat Officers in the area in question at the relevant time) is hardly of any consequence. The Court said, “The Court is not able to comprehend as to why said Beat Officers waited till the recording of their statements/ supplementary statements under Section 161 Cr.P.C to name the applicant, when they had categorically seen and identified the applicant indulging in riots on the date of incident, i.e 25.02.2020.” Lastly, the Court directed that applicant Kuldeep be released on bail in the matter on his furnishing a Personal Bond in the sum of Rs.20,000/ (Rupees Twenty Thousand Only) with one surety in the like amount to the satisfaction of Ld.CMM/Ld.Illaka MM/Ld.Duty MM.
