Putin instructed to ensure that video games do not distort historical events

On May 8, 2024, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree approving the foundations of state policy in the field of historical education. One of the points of the document concerns video games.

Putin suggested that the government create mechanisms of state and public control that "exclude the uncontrolled spread" of games that distort historical events and Russia's role in the world.

It is not the first time in recent months that Putin has proposed to strengthen control over the gaming market. For example, in December 2023, he instructed to check the content in games for compliance with Russian information laws. Shortly before that, he agreed that the servers of popular games must necessarily be located in Russia, and the games themselves must be hosted in the domain zone.ru.
