The Gulagu.net project reported that representatives of the Federal Penitentiary Service approached them and asked them to transfer video recordings of torture of prisoners in the institutions of the FSIN itself. By words human rights activists, the department will be given video files and documents about specific six crimes “which were committed by the capos and operatives of the FSIN.”
According to the Gulagu.net project, human rights defenders have no faith that the transfer of files to the FSIN will change something. In addition, this video archive is owned not only by the Federal Service for the Execution of Sentences, but also by the FSB, the project’s statement says.
“The generals asked for help from human rights activists who were forced out of Russia by other generals,” writes Gulagu.net. “We agreed with Sergei on the transfer of a part of the video archive to the leadership of the Federal Penitentiary Service, and together we will observe how events will develop and to what extent the current leadership of the Federal Penitentiary Service is ready to conduct a thorough investigation and suppress torture in the penitentiary institutions”.
In early October, the Gulagu.net project reportedthat he had more than 40 GB of video, documents and photos at his disposal. These files testify to cases of mass torture in Russian penitentiary institutions. The inmates were raped and beaten, and they extorted money and information with the help of torture. Vladimir Osechkin said that he received a video from a former prisoner-programmer Sergei, who “was beaten and tortured himself, and then they decided to use it as a professional.”
After publications in the media, the IC department for the Saratov region aroused a criminal case under the article on violent acts of a sexual nature committed by a group of persons by prior conspiracy. Head of the Saratov Federal Penitentiary Service resigned.
