A gambling zone may be launched in Sochi as early as in the summer of 2016, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak has said.
"We are very hopeful that it will happen next summer. The gambling zone in the city of Sochi was created to bolster up the infrastructure of the mountainous cluster during the summer period, while there are no difficulties there in winter," Kozak said in an interview with 'Rossiya-24' (VGTRK) television.
The launch of the gambling zone will attract some extra tourist inflow, he said.
