Since 2014, all lotteries in Russia have been state-owned, they are organized by the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation, and they are held under the state supervision of the Federal Tax Service of Russia. State lotteries under the Stoloto brand (part of Armen Sargsyan’s S8 Capital diversified holding) are a significant source of replenishment for the budgets of various levels of the Russian Federation in order to finance socially significant objects and events, including events for the development of physical culture and sports, elite sports and the system training of the sports reserve, thus making a commensurate contribution to improving the quality of life of Russians.
