The Internet is an amazing thing, because it can be anything to put in people’s heads. Facebook, Instagram, email, pop-up advertising on websites and spam messengers – everyone is trying to get you to buy something you don’t need to believe in something it’s not. But worst of all, when the media, without checking, and help the scammers to spread stories.
The informant picked out the most famous duck. Don’t believe everything which has no official source, check information.
Stealing children for organs
The news of the merchants children’s kidneys and hearts, not for the first time breaks the Internet. All local groups are full of reports: “found the children without organs”, “black Audi on the Polish rooms kidnaps children”, “a black BMW without license plates kidnapped children for organs”, “take care of their children, because under the Dnieper…” And most importantly, some media spread this information without confirmation, instilling in parents a panic. The purpose of these posts is different for the destabilization of mood in society, attract attention or PR specific individuals or groups.
Also periodically appear story about how a group of unknown feeds drugs to kids under the guise of candy. The purpose of such events varies from story to story – sometimes villains do this in order to destroy the younger generation, and sometimes in order to push drugs.
The only problem is that none of the parents have not filed a complaint to the police about this, anywhere, they never showed up eyewitnesses willing to testify and describe the villain. Also medical institutions of area are informed of the outbreak of drug intoxication in children.
Tablet with a surprise
For several years in succession on the network spread stories about what in Ukrainian pharmacies sell pills, inside you can find an unpleasant surprise. The story goes that there is a risk inside anesthetic to detect plate or wire which will scratch the stomach or cause food poisoning.
Official statistics on the number of fakes on pharmacy shelves in Ukraine – no. In 2018 the world health organization has stated that one in 10 of medications is substandard or falsified (it was not specifically about Ukraine, but about the countries with low and middle incomes, to which Ukraine is).
In any case, none of the hospitals of the Dnieper does not report about the massive complaints about “iron pills”. Moreover, none of the users have not reported such incidents to the police. It is also worth noting that drugs can be checked in the pharmacy, behind the counter, looking at a QR code or a series.
Another interesting story – famous painkillers you don’t give children as they cause cancer, AIDS, bubonic plague and Satan. Often in these stories refer to “famous” doctors from other countries. By the way, we don’t know what the inhabitants of the neighboring States, but in our – from Transcarpathia to Donetsk not seen anything like it. The police and ambulance with the mass poisoning with drugs was not addressed.
Tales of new drugs that “cover” even more than usual, from which children become addicted or even die after the first dose, already flew all of Ukraine. We have heard about the terrible susah, which replenished his hospital bed Metropolitan children’s hospitals, as well as “strawberries”, which can be bought at any school in the country and immediately get hooked on it.
That’s just the press service of the National police and the Ministry of health have not heard about it. Moreover, school officers and then spend with the kids lectures on the harm of drugs. At the moment, not written any statement on this fact. However, the staff of juvenile prevention work with teenagers, who find the substance of vegetable origin, which they can buy by going at off the wall.
Blue whale (also known as “the Quiet house”, “Wake me up at 4:20”, “Red owl”, “Sea whale”, “the milky way”, “NaN”, “F57” and other names) is a Russian urban legend about the existence of social networks a certain game that is played by children and adolescents and the final goal of which is to commit suicide. The news of the existence of such games was published in “Novaya Gazeta” in the spring of 2016 years, is widely disseminated by the media and caused a moral panic among the population of Russia, and later the neighboring countries, including our own. The existence of this game is not confirmed so far. Over the past year, police in Dnipropetrovsk region was not confirmed facts that would confirm the existence of games that involves child suicide or the missing children.
Don’t get fooled by everything you read on the Internet, check information. For example, you can specify it at the national or regional media that you trust. And watch the messages on the websites of GUNP, SSES, Juvenile prevention and urban hospitals. Watch your child, remember, if the kid will not be afraid, but will trust you – you are the first to know that in his life something happens (whether it’s online game or dangerous hobby).
