On April 17, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova, in response to the complaints received, visited pre-trial detention center No.  2 of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in Moscow.

During the visit, the High Commissioner examined the conditions of detention, including how the premises were disinfected during the coronavirus pandemic.

"Twice a day, all premises of the detention center are disinfected, and the entire surrounding area is also treated. I managed to see several cells in which disinfection was carried out using quartz lamps and other disinfection means. Everyone who comes to the territory of the center is dressed in special protective suits, the employees work on a rotating basis without leaving the territory for two weeks," Tatiana Moskalkova said.

According to Tatiana Moskalkova, the accused had no complaints during the conversation. The detainees said that they went out for a walk every day. In addition to the compulsory diet, they order food from the store. The list of products includes everything for good nutrition.

In addition, all employees and detainees conduct thermometric examinations 2 times a day. The laboratory was launched there which daily tests up to 90 people. Detainees also take precautions and wear masks while taking walks. Especially for new entrants, pre-trial detention center No. 7 is equipped in Moscow, where quarantine is held for 20 days. In Zelenograd pre-trial detention center No. 12 is equipped for those convicts who will be then transferred to places of imprisonment.

In conclusion, the High Commissioner noted that a large number of citizens who did not commit violent crimes were held in pre-trial detention center No. 2 for economic crimes.

"At the same time, I think that measures other than deprivation of liberty, such as bail, house arrest, and surety, could be applied with respect to citizens who have not committed serious violent crimes against the person and are charged with economic crimes," Tatiana Moskalkova said.
