A Russian defence official has accused Metal Gear of being created by US spy agencies
What most of us think of as Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid games are actually part of a covert U.S. intelligence project meant to destabilize governments and sow anti-authoritarianism around the world, a top Russian defence official has claimed.
The Moscow Times reports that Andrei Kartapolov included Metal Gear in a list of what he said were US-led efforts at destabilization.
⚡️Germany Offers Russian Deserters Asylum
Germany is ready to accept Russian citizens who desert from military duty by offering asylum “on grounds of political persecution”, ministers said Thursday.
The European Commission is set to discuss the issue of issuing humanitarian visas to Russians on Thursday, but there has been no decision yet.
Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics said that for reasons of national security, the Baltic Republic will not issue humanitarian or other types of visas to Russian citizens who evade mobilization.
Separately, Justice Minister Marco Buschmann tweeted using the hashtag “partial mobilization” that “apparently, many Russians are leaving their homeland – anyone who hates Putin’s path and loves liberal democracy is welcome in Germany”.
