A gaming zone in Sochi may start working in the spring or early summer of 2015, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak said.
"This zone may start actually working at the beginning of next year, or to be more precise, at the start of the next resort season, in May-June," Kozak said at a news conference in Moscow on Thursday.
The Krasnodar territorial administration is currently preparing the necessary proposals, he said.
"The infrastructure necessary for the organization of such a zone was built during the preparations for the Olympic Games, and everything can be arranged quickly enough. There is no need to build anything new," he said.
"The planned gaming zone in Anapa will certainly be closed," he said.
"The closure of the zone operating on the border with the Rostov region is being discussed so far, and no final decision has yet been made," he said.
