The cruel behavior that the Russian created didn’t even end when he was behind bars. Imprisoned behind the walls of the famous Kresta prison in St. Petersburg, Philipp Budeikin, also known by his pseudonym Phillipp Fox, received dozens of letters from teenage fans with whom he corresponded with regularly. Prison authorities claim that they can’t forbid him from carrying out mail correspondences. But for young girls, unfortunately, this is extremely dangerous.
The teens trust in their potential tormentor. They’ve been sucked so deep into this monstrous game that they can’t get out of it. What does the process of manipulating young people look like? The killer game known as “Blue Whale” relies on brainwashing vulnerable teens for a time period of 50 days, encouraging them to perform tasks from watching horror movies to waking up at strange times of the day and self-mutilation. Essentially worn out and confused, they end up being persuaded into committing suicide, usually by jumping from a high height.
