Russia's mission in the UN turned to the Supreme Commissioner for Human Rights and the Human Rights Council, asking to "respond" to Ukrainian computer game Strategic Mind: Blitzkrieg, which allegedly "glorifies the Nazism and international criminals judged by the Nurnberg tribunal". The Russian diplomatic office put the respective message on Twitter.
The message features a video screenshot from the game, with Hitler observing the military parade on the Red Square.
The game evoked significant interest of the diplomats and reporters in Russia. They blamed the game for propaganda of Nazism; during the evening show 60 Minutes at Rossiya 1 TV channel, someone claimed that "the Nazis rule Ukraine".
Ihor Tymoshenko, the Chairman of the production studio states that there was not a single Nazi symbol in the game.
"We're trying to create games that show the WWII from the points of view of different countries. We already released Strategic Mind: The Pacific with the U.S. and Japan. Now, we're telling the story of Germany. Then, we plan to switch to the USSR and Allies".
