The official high-ranking representative of the gambling zone, Dmitry Anfinogenov, said that large-scale coronavirus restrictions were the main reason for the decline in the profitability of local gambling establishments.
“Starting from March, our earnings figures approached zero. However, despite all the difficulties and circumstances, we did not stop fulfilling our work and the approved obligations. The company did not turn away from its employees, providing them with support and financial assistance. In addition, we have achieved a deferment on previously issued loans.”
