MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The convicts, employed in the souvenir workshop, make carved wooden backgammon and chess. The products are produced in single copies by order of the company of the city of Barnaul, which sells them through the online store and trading platforms of the Altai Territory and the Altai Republic.
Materials for souvenirs are supplied by the customer. At the main stage of production – the stage of artistic woodcarving – two convicts are engaged. Cloths for chess and backgammon are made of cedar, pieces are made of birch. In addition, convicts employed in the carpentry shop and the paint booth are involved in the production process.
It should be noted that the employment of convicts contributes to the solution, first of all, of the issues of their resocialization, the development of labor skills necessary for adaptation in society, as well as for making payments to victims.
