SOVIET PROPAGANDA IS OFFENSIVE sign now

Dear admins of Omerta Game Ltd.

We are writing this petition in the name of all post-soviet countries, which include most of Eastern Europe.
As we all know, Omerta is a mafia game. However, besides the game, there is also a community. And community is protected by internal rules. As long as we played the game, we saw lots of racists, fascists and other kinds of discriminators punished. And we support it. Nobody has a right to use a country's or nation's tragedy to offend people.

The fact, that offends us most, is that some families are permitted to use soviet names and symbols. We are aware that history lessons in Western Europe do not give proper information about war crimes of Soviet Union, performed by Stalin and other dictators. We do understand some of those people simply do not understand the tragedy our countries suffered under soviet rule. Still, it looks no different, that permitting kids play on a graveyard with bones.

Here are our statements:

1. It offends us to see families allowed to call themselves "Redarmy". It is no different than call a family "Third Reich" or "CuCluxClan". The real Red Army killed millions of innocent Polish, Lithuanian, Latvian, Estonian, Finnish, Czechoslovakian (current Czech and Slovakian), Hungarian, Russian, Ukrainian, Korean and other countries civilian residents.
Our parents and grandparents still carry alive memories of genocides, gulags, famines, destruction and forced assimilation, performed by Soviet Empire in our side of Iron Curtain. Numbers are even higher than those of Holocaust victims. And by numbers we do not mean any military casualties. Just murdered civilians, gulagged and raped women, children buried alive.

2. It does offend us to see families allowed to use soviet symbols just for fun and even having some people admire them.
For example: swastikas have been used thousand year ago in India as a symbol of a sun. It was enough 20 or 30 years of wrong nazi usage, to get them frobidden all over the world.
The USSR symbol WAS INVENTED by soviets, and is still allowed after all what they did?
This is nothing else than a spit in the face, to promote symbols of the killers of the innocent people.

We demand:

No families called "Redarmy" should be allowed in the game.
Every family and member, promoting soviet symbols must be punished. Symbols must be forbidden.

Otherwise we will be considering contacting relevant European Union institutions, since it's law protects our rights not to be discriminated in both real and virtual space.

With Respect,
Players from post-soviet countries and the supporters.
