MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) – Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has warned of the dangers of the Pokemon Go augmented reality game, saying it breeds violence in the society.
"Thousands of people end up living in virtual reality," Maduro said during the "In contact with Maduro" ("En contacto con Maduro") TV program.
According to the Venezuelan leader, Pokemon Go encourages violence in people from a young age.
Experts have warned that the game, launched earlier in July, can lead to injuries.
The Russian Emergencies Ministry has come up with safety recommendations for people playing the Pokemon Go game, Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov told journalists on Thursday.
