Well, I would say that you are late and the previous reporter is wrong. The fact is that esports is recognized as a sport in Russia, and the federation already exists. That's all.
Nothing. Esports is not a sport. In my opinion, esports is an attempt to justify an excessive passion for games. I understand that there are professional players, multimillion-dollar prizes, but, for example, a football player runs great not only on the football field, but also anywhere. And the esportsman will start to lay down not just when entering the real world, but when changing the game. Previously, there was a very popular thing like the MW1. Lanes were held, there were squares and mixes, and now very few people will understand what it is about. Esports is too fickle to be judged as a separate entity (Wangyu South Korea with Starcraft in the comments)
