There is another games industry support group in Russian government

Remember that hilarious games industry support group in Russian parliament? The one with no actual game developers? It’s been holding several meetings since then, discussing, I kid you not, ban on long articles and non-patriotic games, and enforcing e-sports shows on federal TV.

Department of Communications on the other hand just started another games industry support group – this time with real game developers, including Wargaming, Mail.ru and 1C representatives.

Expect some kind of competition between those two, although my money are on DoC group.

Still, games journo group in Parliament generated a lot of hilarious proposals. I would love to see “maximum games article length” enforced.

    “It met several times” sentence is rough. “Its been holding several meetings” maybe?

      Yup, that’s better, thanks!

    Well, it may be better, but it’s still WW2-religion centered. Why they didn’t invite ice-pick lodge, Krank and other non-WW2 developers?

    Because they trying to reinforce “putin won WW2″ narrative. In moscow there is already official paintings on the walls of transformer substations, dedicated to 9 may with putin depicted as a winner soldier.
    PUTIN RETURNED CRIMEA, UKRAINE IS NAZIS, WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
