The Russian police instructed people how to take selfies in the safe mode

It’s so easy to take a selfie using smartphone ! Many people do this, all the people like this. It’s not sure if Russian are another sort of people (this is not about any discrimination, please !). However, a lot of Russian were killed taking selfies and this became a problem for the Russian police. The most recent death occurred last week when a woman fell from a bridge in Moscow.

So, enough is enough ! Russian police have started a new campaign called "Safe Selfies." They clearly explained that taking selfies is not a good idea on train tracks and posing with tigers and even designed an illustrated instruction leaflet on how to take a selfie without getting hurt. Interior ministry spokesman Yelena Alexeyeva said "along with the advantages of the modern world there are also new threats. We want to remind citizens that the pursuit of 'likes' in social media can put them on the road to death." But has the police the imagination that people have ? In January, two young men blew themselves up in the Ural Mountains while taking a selfie holding a hand grenade with the pin pulled out. It’s a sort of playing a modern “Russian roulette” with smartphone, do you think so ?
