Organizers of sports events will be obliged to take steps to prevent insider data distribution. Besides, acts will be also complemented with the previously adopted provision, prohibiting betting on competitions for children and young people. The Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation is responsible for the plan fulfilment.
