Russia should ban the Pokemon Go app that allows you to search and tame pokémon in the real world. In an interview with Baltika.fm said the chieftain of the St. Petersburg Cossack society “the Leopard” Andrey Polyakov.
“People need to get out of the virtual world, and it’s all smacks of Satanism. There are so many really interesting cases and professions in our land, how many can be fun to do, so we can’t be distracted by any nonsense. People are out partying and she is so short, so must be the most interesting to live it,” — said Polyakov.
The company “IRBIS” has decided to send appeals on prohibition of application on the territory of Russia to the Federal service and Federal Antimonopoly service. Also, the Cossacks are going to complain to Apple, whose app store you can download app Pokemon Go.
“What concerns churches and temples, Holy places and cultural institutions and in institutions, it should be banned definitely. Need to respect the culture and faith of the people, no matter what. Either should be reasonable instruction that must be followed, or must the app be banned in General”, — said the Poles.
The release of the game with augmented reality Pokemon Go was held on July 6. For a week the app was installed more than 15 million times. According to experts, the game brings developers about $1.6 million per day.
Users looking for Pokemon Go and tame pokemon around the city, train them and even arrange fights. The appearance of pocket monsters often turns into confusion. Players often catch pokémon in cemeteries, in churches, police stations and on railway tracks. Holocaust memorial Museum in Washington and the Arlington national cemetery has asked the visitors to desist from catching pokemon.
According to some reports, the app can run in Russia before the end of this week. Officially, the developers have not announced a release date.
