15:59 25/08/2011

Rostov-on-Don, August 25 - RAPSI. The Supreme Commercial Court will hear a claim filed by Kazan investor Pak Express on October 3. The suit seeks to invalidate the Russian governments decree "On abolishing the Azov-City gambling zone," the court said.

On July 1, 2009, a federal law banning gambling in Russia, except in four designate gambling zones, came into effect. Azov-City gambling zone borders the Krasnodar Territory and Rostov Region. The first legal Russian casino opened in Azov-City in early 2010.

In the middle of 2010, Kuban authorities proposed moving the gambling zone from the Azov shore to an open area on the Black Sea shore "for greater economic effect." In early November 2010, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed a federal law excluding the Rostov Region from the list of regions hosting gambling zones.
