Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko is dissatisfied with the way Russian characters are portrayed in Western video games. In his opinion, the developers are trying to form a negative image of Russia.
Chernyshenko drew attention to the fact that in games they often make Russian villains. For example, the creators of Call of Duty did this.
Russian Russian “In one of the quite popular Call of Duty games, the main negative character is a bad Russian, and they say that this is a Russian general. He is bad there, he shoots, kills, drinks vodka there — in general, everything that they are trying to say bad about us,” Chernyshenko said, speaking at the educational marathon “Knowledge. The first ones.”
Separately, Chernyshenko pointed out that Western studios can track the data of players from Russia, and then use them “in various very bad things.”
