Russian advertising restriction
By staff
The State Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament, has passed a draft bill on restricting the advertising of casinos and gambling.

If the draft bill becomes law, it will prohibit advertising of casinos, numerous slot machine parlors, and other types of gambling on TV between 7 am and 10 pm.

Ads won’t be allowed to portray gambling and casinos as a way to gain social standing or a measure of personal success. Nor should ads discredit people who choose not to visit casinos or gamble. Adverts will not be allowed to target the young, so people used in the advets have to be older than 35.

The Duma committee chairman on economic policy explained the parliament’s restrictive policy follows the lead of other countries limiting access to gambling.

While the State Duma of Russia has so far reacted positively to the bill, the Cabinet of Ministers has opposed the law.
