When I played one of the tournaments, a player from Ukraine also wrote in a chat that pokerstars in Ukraine would be closed. What Zelensky will impose sanctions on pokerstars as well as bookmaker's cantors. Who is from Ukraine, do you know something about it?

Also, I have not heard anything like this, and pokerstars head office in Britain is located and this country is our ally:)

I haven't heard anything about PokerStars being closed in Ukraine, and I think this stupid question was just asked to appear on the forum and earn a point for being active

I love a player from Ukraine they play poker well so I think they won't do it and I haven't officially heard such information so I think players from your country will play poker

I read this somewhere that they will remove players from Ukraine and Belarus. The National Center for Operational and Technical Management of Telecom Networks ordered to block 709 Internet resources with casinos or gambling in Ukraine.The NCU responded in this way to the appeal of the Bureau of Economic Security of Ukraine and the Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries.

Seems to be no more than rumours at this time, so players from those countries should just wait and see, what happens. When PokerStars decide to pull out of a market, they inform players directly with information about, when services will stop, and how to withdraw their funds.

That's a shame if this goes ahead. A very large customer base plays out of Ukraine. Is poker winnings taxed by the government in Ukraine?

I don't think this is likely. I think your partner just misunderstood something

I know that pokerstars has closed its operations in Russia due to war and sanctions. But in Ukraine I haven't seen any official information from PokerStars yet.
Well, if that happens, it must be because of the difficulty for pokerstars to move there due to the war. War is a situation that can paralyze the financial system, making transactions difficult.

I think that is very unlikely. The Google query in English and in German gives nothing at all about it. It would be very unusual if the Internet were totally blind here. Answers here refer mainly to the end with Russia last year.

I don't think this should happen, it makes no sense.

The truth is that there is nothing official about a closure or blockade of PS towards Ukraine, but this situation is always possible, and it wouldn't be the first country where it happens.

I didn’t hear anything about Pokerstars, the bookmakers were shut down because of the sanctions, but in reality there was a war between banks and the tax authorities.
