First Russian President Dimitri Medvedev joined Twitter. Next he visited Twitter and Apple HQs. Now he’s suggesting that someone make a World of Warcraft knock-off to teach about his country’s history.
I’m starting to like this guy.
“I’ve checked what’s our youth are playing with, and most games are pseudo-historical and fantasy-based,” the Moscow Times reports that Medvedev told a gathering of his culture and science councils at a joint session Friday.
“Take ‘World of Warcraft.’ … It’s not all about destruction. It has a subtext about developing human civilisation,” Medvedev said. “We could try to make something similar if it’s so popular – not globally, perhaps, but at the domestic level.”
Next year is the 1150th anniversary of Russia’s statehood.
