Bookmaker Parimatch ceases to operate on the territory of Russia

The betting company Parimatch has announced the termination of its operation on the territory of Russia. In an official statement, the company explained its decision to withdraw the Parimatch brand franchise in Russia due to Russian military aggression in Ukraine.

The Parimatch brand withdraws the franchise from Russia. The Board of Directors of Parimatch Tech decided to withdraw the franchise for the use of the Parimatch brand in Russia due to the military aggression of the Russian Federation in Ukraine. Documents on the termination of work have been prepared and sent to BETRING LLC, which was previously the operator of the Parimatch brand, and the holding continues to develop restrictions on the use of the brand in local sponsorship contracts.

Compromises are inappropriate now! We have always been proud of the Ukrainian roots of our company, and in these difficult times we are even more filled with love for our native country. We categorically condemn the military aggression against Ukraine and are trying to do everything possible to help Ukraine!

The betting company Parimatch was founded in 1994 in Kyiv. The company has been operating in Russia since 1998. It is likely that the company will also terminate all partnership agreements with clubs and brands based in Russia.

Recall that earlier similar statements were made by Evgeny Zolotarev, Petr1k, Kane, Andrey Grigoriev, XBOCT and many other prominent eSports figures. In addition, the Ukrainian esports organization NAVI broke off cooperation with the ESforce holding, which owns such assets as RuHub, Epic Esports Events, Cybersport.ru and Virtus.pro.
