I have a cousin in Belarus who is serving 5 years for some petty crimes and stealing a car. The Russian prision system is probally one of the worst prision systems in the world. The abuse/violence is barley ever stopped if ever. People get killed their like flies, the government sees that as a form of punishment so they don't reform anything.
In United States and Canada you get cable while in a Russian prision you don't even get a tolilet just a hole in the ground that rarley has a working sewage system.
SOmeone wrote this on another forum. Is this true?
That's very true.
Besides that, they sleep on the ground which is concrete, and maybe they'll be lucky enough to get a blanket.
They beat people randomly. People get broken bones and other severe injuries such as interal organs getting raptured from beatings, and alot die by getting killed or commit suicide.
Fortunately i have never been in a Russian prison, but from what i have heard they treat people like beasts there and have Typhus, Cholera and all that shit.
Take this for example:
TB Corrective Institution (ColonyNo.10)
Location: Kaisk, 145 kilometres from Nizhny Novgorod
The colony was built in the 1940s. It has a ward with 250 beds for the seriously ill.
The colony can accommodate up to 1,077 people at any time. The average yearly number of prisoners was 1,240 in 1995, 1,890 in 1996 and 2,100 in 1997. As many as 70% of the convicts suffer from acute forms of tuberculosis (collapsed lungs). Of them 80% require treatment in wards, but there are not enough beds. The colony has only 40% of the required number of doctors, therefore the patients frequently have to wait in line outside for treatment.
The colony received just an eighth of its required funding from the federal budget in 1997.
A total of 158 people died in the colony between January 1 and October 21, 1997. The number of deaths is expected to increase to 340 in 1998. In the first 10 months of 1977, 600 prisoners released on completion of their sentences had an acute form of TB, and 170 recovered.
Expenditures on food for convicts totaled 4,000 rubles ($0.7) per person per day, and expenditures on treatment 2,000 rubles in 1997. By comparison, expenditures on treatment at a city tuberculosis clinic were 50,000 rubles ($8.3) for bed patients and 20,000 rubles ($3.3) for out-patients.
Seems like Mother Russia has no heart for prisoners.
