Ukraine asks Xbox and PlayStation to ban Russian gamers

Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation, has been on all fronts for a few days (there is a double meaning). After requesting and obtaining logistical support from star link and after having requested, and obtained, the suspension of sales of Apple products in Russia, one of the strong men of the Ukrainian government makes a new request, this time to the address of Xbox, PlayStation and several large video game studios .

Once again, Mykhailo Fedorov is direct: “Russia has not only declared war on Ukraine but on the entire civilized world. If you support human values, you have to leave the Russian market! » writes the minister on his Twitter account. and to continue: “I call for the temporary blocking of all Russian and Belarusian accounts, and the temporary suspension of the participation of Russian and Belarusian teams and players in esports events”. Mykhailo Fedorov also addressed several video game studios such as Riot Games, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, or even Gameloft, to ask them to close their premises located in Russia. For the moment, neither Microsoft, nor Sony, nor any of the studios arrested have yet responded to this call.
