I'm not a Ubisoft staff member, or even a programming expert, but from what I know about programming, it looks like your game is having trouble loading a line of text (The "LoadStringA" part). I think its dumping the 32 bytes as a result of being unable to read/use them properly. What I would do is check the integrity of your game files using steam. Another option, but I would wait for an answer from Ubisoft before you do, is to reinstall your game. That should take care of it if the problem is in fact coming from your game files.
Wait a minute, is this message displayed as soon as you try to start r6s from steam, or is it displayed after the game is already running? I would still verify the integrity of your local game files though.

let say, steam says it's running, and then it displays that message.

What I mean is, does the window for r6s ever pop up, or does it display as soon as you press start game?

the window displays as soon as I press start game.
Ok, well that means that its probably a problem with your local game files. I would strongly recommend that you verify the integrity of your local game files. By the way, verifying the files could take a little while.

Tried that now, I still have the same issue.
Did it say that the integrity of your game files was ok?

It said all files were validated.
Were you able to play r6s in the past? The "Error at hooking API" part means that steam is having trouble accessing another application, which I thought would've been your r6s application. Maybe it could also be the Uplay application?

I was able to open the game in the past.
From what I can tell, unless you moved or deleted files recently, the problem is that a file or files in either r6s, Uplay, or steam have been corrupted or altered in some way. If its not r6s, that likely means that the issue is coming from one or both of the other two. I wish I could tell you that I knew what to do, but honestly I really don't. The best I can tell you to do is to restart your computer, verify the integrity of r6s again, check and see if steam and uplay have any updates, and if none of that works, you can try reinstalling r6s and see if that fixes it. But I would STRONGLY recommend you wait for an answer from someone who knows more about this than me before you uninstall.
If you manage to fix the problem, send me a game invite and I'd be happy to play with you sometime.

Hey Avimov, I'm sorry you are experiencing this error.

Marinenukem has offered some very sound advice - I would always initially suggest verifying the game's files. As his as not resolved the issue, please ensure you are running Steam, Uplay and Siege with admin rights.

Does this happen with any other game? If so, this may be an issue with your OS rather than the game specifically.

If this does not resolve your issue, please create a ticket[support.ubi.com] and include your system files[support.ubi.com] so we can look further into this.

Ok, so the update seems to have fixed the issue. I had re-verified the files, restarted the computer and none of them worked, and when it told me to continue a queued update it apparently fixed them, weird. I still don't know what happened there, maybe missing files.

My UPlay username is AvimovFrom1993 btw
