Russian schoolchildren will be taught to protect themselves from cyberbullying, scammers and pedophiles on the network. The federal Ministry of Education intends to include the appropriate section in the school curriculum OBZh. After studying it, teens will know what types of threats lie in wait on the Internet and how to avoid them.

According to "Izvestia", in February 2019, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the introduction of information security lessons in the school curriculum. First of all, it concerns protection against cyberbullying. Over the past year in the country recorded 638 such episodes. Moreover, in 105 cases, the beating of peers was recorded on video and laid out on the network for further bullying.

Most often, children are exposed to cyberbullying on YouTube and Vkontakte. Social networks are working to clean such content and are actively collaborating with relevant government agencies. However, according to the results of the international study of the quality of education PISA, Russia entered the top ten countries with the highest level of online bullying among students.
