Several major companies have taken boycott measures against Russia in recent days. Yesterday, Apple revealed that it was going to stop selling its products in Russia, for example. At the moment, Russian PlayStation and Xbox users are having no problems playing the game, as neither Microsoft nor Sony have taken action to put pressure on the Putin regime, but changes could be in the offing.
Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, calls for both companies to act. In an open letter addressed to PlayStation and Xbox that he has shared on Twitter , he asks that both platforms block the accounts of users from Russia and Belarus, while requesting that eSports teams from both countries be banned from participating in events. and competitions:
“In 2022, modern technology is perhaps the best answer to tanks, rocket launchers and missiles.
I am sure that you will not only listen, but also do your best to protect Ukraine, Europe and, ultimately, the democratic world from bloody authoritarian aggression, and I call for the temporary blocking of all Russian and Belarusian accounts, the temporary cessation of the participation of Russian and Belarusian teams and players in all international eSports events and the cancellation of all international events to be held on the territory of Russia or Belarus. We are sure that such actions will motivate Russian citizens to proactively stop this shameful military aggression.”
Fedorov does not mention Nintendo, but we assume the company is also included in the request.
