Senator Eduard Isakov has prepared a bill providing for the appointment of corrective works for celebrities for their participation in advertising online casinos.

«In fact, the problem of online casino for a long time. But such popularity they also have thanks to aggressive advertising on the Internet famous people. I think if they made the necessary amendments to the legislative acts, actors, advertising of online casinos think about what is product and what is not. Especially after days of correctional labor. Thus, the demand for gambling may be reduced», — Isakov told RIA Novosti.

He stressed that currently, the advertising of gambling in the Russian Federation is prohibited and shall entail the imposition of an administrative fine on citizens in the amount from 2 thousand to 2.5 thousand rubles.

«In my view, administrative penalties in the form in which they exist in Coupe — insufficient punishment. It does not commensurate with the derived from advertising fees,» said the Senator.

In addition to the appointment of corrective works, the MP also proposes to increase the penalties for participation in such advertising.

Isakov said that he developed the bill has already received positive feedback from relevant ministries and agencies.
