Navalny was transferred to a separate cell in the prison colony in the Vladimir region

In this unit, long-term visits by relatives are not foreseen for the prisoners

The Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny, who is serving his sentence in penal colony no. 6 in Melehovo, Vladimir region, was transferred to an internal unit with separate cells. This is reported on the Russian politician’s Telegram messaging channel, which he says is our prison inside the prison colony.

“It’s a normal narrow cell, like a punishment cell, only you can carry not one book, but two, and use a prison canteen, albeit with a very limited amount of money,” Navalny said.

According to him, long-term visits by relatives are not foreseen for the prisoners in this unit.

“I was entitled to a long-term visit from my relatives as soon as I arrived in the zone, but they didn’t give it to me, telling me to wait four months. I expected. Three days before the visit I was told that I would be transferred to a strict regime cell and that I would receive a visit once every six months. You have to wait. I expected. My mother and father had already packed their bags, one of the children was going to come, Yulia. It was four days before the visit and I was told that I would be transferred to a penitentiary. There are no long term visits there.

So I won’t have any more visits and the management is happy and satisfied and the bosses are satisfied,” said the politician.

A cell-type area is a special prison cell in which convicts who have been transferred there for some crime are kept. It is a special area that is locked, and where convicts live during their sentence (up to six months). Those who belong to this area are not exempted from work, but work separately from others.

Convicts in this area are entitled to court for 30 minutes a day and receive a parcel every six months.
