According to the channel, it is about the Don’t Shoot Us campaign, which accounts were registered in the social networks Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and the YouTube video service. The campaigners reportedly used these platforms to cover numerous incidents of police violence against African Americans.
Competitors were directed to the scene of incidents of police violence, and were encouraged to name their Pokémon after the dead African Americans. In particular, the material announcing the competition featured a Pokemon named Eric Garner – that was the name of a black New Yorker who died in police custody.

Political analyst Pavel Svyatenkov on the air of Sputnik radio expressed the opinion that they are trying to shift responsibility for the problems of the previous American administration onto Russia.
