Lena Klimova, a young journalist from Ekaterinburg, published a series of articles critical of the parliamentary bills against “propaganda of homosexuality”. Afterwards she received an e-mail from a 15-year-old girl who said that she was being bullied by her classmates and her parents because of her homosexuality. The girl wrote that had been on the verge of suicide, but Klimova’s article had made her change her mind. After that Klimova started to research the lives of LGBT adolescents in Russia, and created an online survey. Within under two weeks Klimova had received over a hundred e-mail responses, and that is what made her resolve to create an online support project for LGBT teens. The project consists of two parts: a private “closed” group on the Russian social network VK, whose purpose is to offer psychological assistance to LGBT teens, and in which they can share their problems and get help from adult participants; and open projects on Facebook and VK which publish letters from teens. The popular Spanish newspaper El Mundo wrote the following about the “Children-404” Project in an article entitled “How dangerous to be homosexual in Russia”, writes: "The photos show young faces whose eyes are concealed by placards with the inscription “Children-404”. In numerous letters teens shout “We exist!” in protest against widespread intolerance".
