Commissioner for Human Rights in Kostroma Region Vadim Smirnov visited the Correctional Facility No. 4, which today contains over 350 prisoners.
The key issue discussed during the visit was the provision of a differentiated support to the disabled prisoners and preparation of them for release.
Mr Smirnov has noted that the social support group in the prison efficiently contributes to the inmates’ correction, since the availability of passports, medical assistance, and established relations with relatives facilitate
To conclude the visit, the Commissioner received and consulted some inmates in person.
