Several colonies are planned to be closed in the Krasnoyarsk region


In 2024, several colonies are planned to be closed in the Krasnoyarsk region. According to the regional commissioner for human rights, Mark Denisov, “optimization” is caused by the recruitment of prisoners for the war with Ukraine.

“I note one disturbing trend: a one-time large reduction in the number of convicts in prison conditions prompted someone to report to the top about the need to close penitentiary institutions for the purposes of optimization and economy. A number of institutions will be closed this year and in our region. Among the most famous are the institutions in Areysk and in Hromadsk,” said the ombudsman, speaking on March 21 at the session of the regional legislative assembly with a report on his work in 2023.

As “Kommersant” reports, Denisov considers the closure of colonies inexpedient, as “everything will return to normal, since the social structure of society has not changed.”

On March 19, the State Duma adopted in the third final reading a bill on exemption from criminal liability for concluding a contract with the Ministry of Defense without secret pardon decrees signed by the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin. According to the document, adopted within a two-week period, in the case of concluding a contract with the army, the criminal cases of the suspects will be suspended, and the real term of the convicted will be changed to conditional.

  • The Wagner PMC was the first to recruit prisoners of war. According to its head Yevgeny Prigozhin, about 10,000 prisoners died near Bakhmut. At the end of six months of the contract, the former prisoners were released – amnesty by closed decrees of the president.
  • Thus, Putin pardoned at least 17 people convicted of murder and rape, including a member of a Satanist gang that committed ritual murders of teenagers. All of them participated in the war in Ukraine and returned from the front to freedom. Some have already committed new crimes.
  • In January 2024, it became known that Russian prisoners who went to war with Ukraine stopped receiving pardons from President Vladimir Putin. They are given “conditional release” and their contracts with the Ministry of Defense are automatically extended.
  • The press secretary of the President of Russia, Dmitry Peskov, previously stated that those convicted of serious crimes in Russia “are atoning for their guilt with blood” at the front in Ukraine. This is how he answered the journalists’ question about the pardon of Vladyslav Kanyus, who was sentenced to 17 years in prison for the murder of Vera Pekhteleva and was released after serving in the war.
