“Ukrainian News” information agency has become an associate member of the Ukrainian Gambling Council

The Ukrainian Gambling Council continues to involve new media partners in the union as associate members. Today we are pleased to announce that the “Ukrainian News” National Information Agency has joined the UGC!

Ukrainian News is an information agency that has been operating in Ukraine since 1993. In terms of content generation, it is the leader in the information market, releasing more than 300 news items every day in Ukrainian, Russian and English. The agency covers the most important political, economic, financial and regional events.

In addition to news, the information agency creates and distributes analytic products and serves as a platform for expert blogs. “Ukrainian News” also has its own press centre regularly hosting various press events, including conferences, presentations by speakers and round tables organized, in particular, at the UGC’s initiative.

Commenting on the joining of the “Ukrainian News”, the Chairman of the Ukrainian Gambling Council Anton Kuchukhidze noted: “We have been cooperating with the “Ukrainian News” agency since the first day of the UGC’s establishment. That is why, I am very pleased that such a powerful national media resource has joined our ranks as an associate member.

This is a distinct advantage for the entire legal gambling market in Ukraine. I am sure that now society and industry representatives will have access to news about key events in the gambling field even faster, and the quality of the relevant analytic product will only increase.

I am sure that there are even more joint projects and events ahead of us that will contribute to the development of a civilized gambling market in Ukraine. After all, our cooperation is based on general principles, such as transparency, objectivity in the information coverage and results orientation.

I would like to personally thank the Chairman of the agency Denys Ivanesko for the fruitful cooperation and extensive support throughout the establishment of UGC!

In turn, Denys Ivanesko, Director of the “Ukrainian News” agency, commented on the associate membership in UGC: “The mission of our agency since its creation has been to write about business, contribute to its development, and introduce best practices and culture. I am glad that a legal gambling market with clear rules and laws has been finally established in Ukraine. Not so long ago, Ukraine flooded the world markets with its metal, ore and fertilizers. Today, it is a leader in the export of agricultural products. Perhaps, in tomorrow’s digital world, we will be proud of having the world’s top online casinos, or we will become, at the very least, a regional gambling HUB”.

REFERENCE UGC is an all-Ukrainian specialized gambling public association seeking to unite the entire legal gambling industry to ensure sustainable and effective development of the gambling business in Ukraine. UGC acts as the main platform for communication between the State and the entire legal gambling industry. Today, the number of UGC members is 22 legal gambling operators, gambling organizations and media representatives.
