Finally Russian government has cracked down the mastermind behind the Blue Whale Game which killed almost 160 teens in Russia. Twenty-one-year-old Philipp Budeikin with pride confessed to manipulating 16 young girls into committing suicide . The Russian claims that he was cleansing the society,he was just removing the ‘biological waste’. He insists that the teens who were manipulated in killing themselves were ‘happy to die’.
In total this game has manipulated almost 160 people and this game is slowly gaining popularity in America,160 victims who ended their lives are mostly female’s.”This week, school officials in Alabama warned parents to monitor their kids’ social media habits after finding evidence that some students were playing Blue Whale.” said a Russian official.
The game was into the limelight when two girls Yulia Konstantinova 15, and Veronika Volkova, 16, who fell into the trap of the Blue Whale and jumped off from the 14th floor and other girl from the 9th floor.
Senior official from Russia’s Investigative Committee Anton Breido said “[Philipp] started in 2013 and ever since he has polished his tactics and corrected his mistakes. Philipp and his aides at first attracted children into VK (social media) groups by using mega-scary videos, Their task was to attract as many children as possible, then figure out those who would be the most affected by psychological manipulation. Say, out of 20,000 people, they knew ‘their’ audience would be only 20 people. ‘Biological waste’ is how death group administrators referred to children they pushed to commit suicide.”
He also stated “They gathered the children, then offered simple tasks which for some children were too boring or weird to complete,” he said. “These ones were clearly too strong to be manipulated. Those who stayed were given much stronger tasks like cutting their veins, to balance on a roof top, to kill an animal and post a video or pictures to prove it. Most children left at this stage. A small group that was left who obediently went through all the tasks, with teenagers being physiologically ready to follow whatever the administrators told them, no matter how strange or scary the tasks. They felt their position in the group was so precious that they did literally everything to stay in. One of the troubles for us was that 15 children who committed suicide at administrator’s orders were told to delete all correspondence in their social media accounts, which they all did.”
There was one young girl who was also in the trap of Blue Whale but was able to get out from the trap in the final stage she has shared her experience
“It was middle of a night, my alarm rang, I woke up and got straight to my phone,” said the young, unnamed girl. “I had to watch videos with pictures flicking every two seconds of teenagers jumping off roofs, close ups of bodies, bloodied mouths, pools of blood under bodies. It was accompanied by very unpleasant, haunting music with screams of animals and pets, and cries like children were being tortured. I felt so awful after watching them I wanted to do something physical to either myself or somebody, to kill, to destroy.He shamed me for being weak, and not feeling bad enough about my life,” she said. “I had to watch until the administrator commanded me to stop and ordered me to erase everything.” she said
Philipp Budeikin also told the girls that “Do something beautiful at least once in your life, he was saying, it is so good to die young. Life is awful, it will not get better. You are rare, a selected one.”
“Budeikin may still be playing his games, Russian law permits him to communicate with teenage girls who send him their contact information in jail. Authorities say he has been inundated with love letters from teenage girls,” reports Heat Street.
