Greek gaming enterprise OPAP halts betting on Russian sports events


Greece's biggest gaming firm OPAP on Monday halted betting on Russian sports events in solidarity with Ukraine, where a Russian invasion continued for the fifth day.

OPAP said it has stopped offering betting on any match related to Russian competitions, including football, basketball, and volleyball, either online or through its outlets in Greece.

"In these extremely difficult times, all our thoughts are with the Ukrainian people," OPAP said, adding that all bets placed in Russian matches so far were considered valid.
