The report states that according to the investigative department of the regional Investigative Committee, the office conducted 15 inspections on the fact of suicides, 14 of which were committed by school pupils with seven of them coming from incomplete problem-free families.

Three cases were fatal.

As a result of the inspection it became possible to identify reasons of the incidents: two incidents were caused by depression because of death of a relative, four – by depression and a desire to draw parents' attention, three – by problems in private life and two – by limited access to computer games.

In addition, suicides were caused by drug addiction, use of medicine to relieve pain, fear that parents would scold for a case of alcohol abuse, and family problems.
