According to some data, at the moment this figure is about 900 million hryvnia, and according to others - only 723 million. of positive dynamics in the adoption by the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of amendments to the Tax Code and its separate provisions regulating the work of the gambling business in Ukraine.
