The prisoners were transferred to a prison hospital in the Saratov region, ostensibly for treatment and examination. In fact, a torture conveyor was hidden behind the doors of the prison hospital.
Rape and torture took place under the auspices of the leadership of the PKU OTB-1 of the Federal Penitentiary Service. The so-called group “Activists” from among the prisoners were listed in the prison hospital as caretakers and orderlies. They even received salaries from the state.
The victims were tied to iron beds, beaten and raped. All actions were accompanied by filming on mobile phones, and sometimes even on service video recorders of the FSIN employees.
The victims were required to testify against third parties or were engaged in blackmail, threatening to distribute photos and videos of rape. The victims were required to pay for the blackmail.
For poor prisoners, the rate was 50,000 rubles ($ 680), for businessmen, the payment for blackmail reached 5,000,000 rubles ($ 68,000)
Orders for rape from prisoners’ enemies were also accepted.
In total, more than 100 people passed through the torture conveyor of the prison hospital, many of whom agreed to testify.
Since March of this year, 5 criminal cases have been initiated in relation to what is happening in the prison hospital, but the leadership of the FSIN and the FSB in every possible way obstructs the investigation.
In response, an independent project Gulagu.net begins to publish details of the atrocities and humiliations of prisoners.
