Fan of Many Things
Given European defamation law, yes. Mostly because they specifically said the current dictator is a vampire and under control of others.I saw an article indicating the Chechnyan government was considering suing over it - I have absolutely zero idea of how meaningful or realistic a threat that is, but it is, perhaps, the sort of thing that might make Paradox Interactive take sharp notice of events and step in more directly.
(The original article about the Chechen Republic's response that the other articles seem to be drawing from is in Russian, but there's some stuff in English about it - I'll try and track down the one I saw earlier when browsing the social media ripples from this)
Edit: Apologies if anyone mentioned this on the thread already - I'm having a hard time with the new UI after the forum upgrade.
If they'd created a totally !current dictator they'd be in better shape.
Of course, they'd have to sue through various other channels because I'm pretty sure most of the current regime is wanted for questioning.
But they can still sue in Russian court, and the Russian government has proven that they really donj't care about the purge.
