"The issue of the legislative restrictions introduction, which would limit access to the Internet, appeared long ago.
Uncontrollable visiting suspicious websites by teenagers provokes them to extreme fun including committing demonstrative suicides. Extremist recruiters, swindlers, distributors of pornographic content are only some of those people who our children come across in the worldwide web," he said giving a report on the operational situation and the results of the work of regional offices of internal affairs bodies at the 41th regular session of the regional Legislative Assembly on Friday, February 10.
As an example, Yuri Ruzlyaev mentioned the criminal case opened on the fact of sexual relationships of an adult man and a schoolgirl.
"Just last week we registered the fact of sexual abuse of an 11-year-old girl, who got acquainted with a man, born 1980, on the Internet and met him voluntarily four times in order to have a sexual contact. Only after she told her school friends the details, this became known to the girl's teacher, who raised the alarm. The issue of parents' responsibility arises; parents are not interested in what their children do," the head of the department noted.
He also reported about children who died because of suicide.
"In 2016 we registered five attempts of children's suicide, two of which were fatal. We need legal measures to protect the younger generation," Yuri Ruzlyaev summed up.
