Krasnodar, 7 August – Yug Times.The Shcherbinovsky district risks to find itself without a reliable taxpayer and the investors that for nearly ten years of their work have opened 2,500 jobs in the municipality.

The state-of-the-art and world-class gambling and recreational complex with five-star hotels, a spa centre and chic restaurants may be closed on January 1, 2019. Such may be the consequences of the federal authorities’ fluctuating views on how Russian gambling zones should be developing and interacting with each other. Initially it was ascertained that starting from 2009, gambling would be permitted only in special zones located at a fair distance from settlements, that is from children, pensioners and socially vulnerable citizens.

As a result, the Krasnodar regional administration invested 1 billion roubles in the development of the area that had not had any communications or roads. On their side, the investors gave another 7 billion. In 2016, the ambitious plans began to collapse, when - contrary to all principles of remoteness and inadmissibility for socially vulnerable groups - the Sochi Casino and Resort was opened at Marriot Hotel in Krasnaya Poliana. Now even little kids can see the roulette and playing machines on their way to the restaurant.

But the federal power is interested in only one aspect of the law No. 244 of 2006, which has become outdated, namely the provision stating that there can be only one gambling zone in one region. So it was Azov City that became under threat of closure, despite the fact that it is a successful and profitable complex. Over a thousand people signed the open letter to President Putin. They reminded that for nearly ten years, Azov City had been their main breadwinner.

“Who will come to our district, who will invest here after we have simply buried billions of roubles?” Head of Municipality Sergei Tsirulnik asks. “The consequences of the closure of Azov City would be disastrous for the Shcherbinovsky district both in social and in economic respect.”
