"The bill speaks about a temporary ban of a gaming to making decision on permission in any territory to carry out something. It is a gipperpopulizm.

We have to win at last against one-armed bandits, as well as other bandit, at which, unfortunately, two hands. We will begin while with one-armed bandits, and then we will deal and with another", - he declared.
