Credit organizations that violate the new law will be reported for their actions before the fts. If their wines are proven, then as a measure of punishment, a policy of imprisonment of a license to conduct relevant activities can be applied.
Sites that carry out transboundary translations in favor of gambling companies prohibited in russia will be subjected to extrajudicial blocking by decision of the fts.
