Stavropol Cossacks took to the fight against Pokemon Go
The game Pokemon Go should be banned on the territory of the Russian Federation, says the ataman of the Mikhailovsky Cossack Cossack Society, Andrey Vorontsov.

On it, a young man declares that he decided to catch Pokémon in the church as a protest against the law prohibiting it. For actions in religious institutions, like catching Pokemon, liability is provided: a fine of up to half a million rubles or three years in prison. In the video, Sokolovsky states: “For me, this is complete nonsense. Who can be offended that you walked around the church with your smartphone?”

And now he sneered at the place of execution of an entire family, where there were children among the dead. Few would support this antics. the so-called blogger.
