Russia is in news for all wrong reasons. Here the police is investigating a rush of teenage suicide attempts amid fears that they may have been manipulated by sinister social media groups. In the past weekend, two schoolgirls committed suicide by falling down from a building. It was said that they did so because they were influenced by the craziness of a game on social media called Blue Whale.
In this game, teenagers are asked to commit suicide on day 50 of being involved in the game. Two school girls Yulia Konstantinova, 15, and Veronika Volkova, 16, committed suicide as per part of this bizarre game. They fell down from the roof of an apartment block in industrial Ust-Ilimsk.
Yesterday a girl named Ekaterina who is 15 years old got critically injured after falling onto the snowy ground from a flat in the city of Krasnoyarsk, also Siberia reported being the part of this bizarre game. Two days earlier, a 14-year-old girl from Chita was reported to have thrown herself under a commuter train.
After an investigation, it got revealed that all these deaths were related to a controversial web ‘suicide game’. This game has influenced the girls to seek to take their lives. Yulia left a note saying ‘End’ on her social page and earlier she had posted a picture with big blue whale, seen as a symbol of a social media movement encouraging children to take their own lives.
And you can’t believe who is the mastermind of this death game, 21 years old boy Philipp Budeikin. He used to trap teenage girls in this controversial Blue Whale game. The game influenced the player up to that extent that she even agreed to take her own life. He completely brainwashed the girls that they committed suicide. Philipp trapped near about 16 girls and now these all are nor more in this world.
