MOSCOW (AP) — The Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia says it does not mind people playing the hit smartphone game "Pokemon Go" around synagogues and other cultural buildings.

The Jewish community's governing body said in a statement Tuesday that it is not against the game as long as it is not disturbing the congregation.

The game has had a mixed reaction from other denominations and Russian politicians. While Russian airports and banks have endorsed the game, the Russian Orthodox Church and some Duma deputies have angrily complained that the Western-developed app has harmed Russia.
