A Moscow court has sentenced Dmitry Glukhovsky, the renowned author of the original Metro 2033 novel and its sequels, to eight years in prison for “deliberately spreading false information”. Glukhovsky is accused of posting texts and videos on his social media platforms claiming that Russian servicemen have been committing crimes in Ukraine.
According to reports by the Associated Press, Glukhovsky was tried in absentia as he is currently outside of Russia. The author has been labeled a “foreign agent” since last year due to his critical stance on the Kremlin and President Putin himself. This case falls under the law passed by the Russian parliament shortly after the invasion of Ukraine, which imposes jail terms of up to 15 years for spreading “fake” news about the military.
Dmitry Glukhovsky has been a vocal critic of the Russian regime for quite some time, fearlessly expressing his views. The author has openly and critically discussed the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which began in February 2022, through his social media channels.
Within the gaming community, Glukhovsky is well-known as the creative force behind the Metro series that inspired a popular video game adaptation. These dystopian novels depict the struggles of survivors living in the underground metro of Russia, where rival factions fight for power in a post-nuclear wasteland.
Glukhovsky is not alone in his criticism of Russia’s actions within the gaming industry. The developers of Metro 2033, such as 4A Games, have also called for support, shedding light on the situation to the fullest extent possible.
Some of these developers have firsthand experience with the war, with reports even suggesting that some have fought and lost their lives on the frontline.
