Russian gamers join forces to prevent potential nuclear conflict

The latest trend in Moscow is a war game where participants race to find nuclear codes. Russian officials are capitalizing on fears and staging a mass nuclear drill. Participants in the game are tasked with finding the launch codes and deactivating a hidden red button. While it is just a game, it is unsettling given the current tensions between Russia and the West. The Russian government has been preparing citizens for the possibility of conflict, broadcasting a mass training exercise involving 40 million people. Though all-out conflict is highly unlikely, tensions over various issues may lead to contact and escalation between the nuclear superpowers. The Kremlin seems eager to highlight this risk, with state television increasing its hardline rhetoric. Despite this, many Russians do not believe war is likely. In a bunker-themed game in Moscow, participants successfully crack the launch codes and deactivate the missile, saving the United States from the virtual Russian attack.
