Head of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia for the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug – Ugra Alexander Fedorov held a working meeting with the Ombudsman for the Rights of Entrepreneurs in Ugra Nikolai Yevlakhov.
During the meeting, they discussed issues of support and development of the production of the institutions of the penal system of Ugra, assistance in ensuring employment of convicts, as well as the observance of the legal rights and interests of Ugra businessmen cooperating with the Federal Penitentiary Service.
The head of the Federal Penitentiary Service, Alexander Fedorov, dwelled on the basic principles of the work of centers for labor adaptation of convicts, introduced the Commissioner Nikolai Yevlakhov to the products manufactured, the institutions of the penal system of the district and their production potential.
The production facilities of the subordinate institutions make it possible to manufacture a variety of products used in various fields, metalworking, woodworking products, building materials, garments, footwear, etc.
Currently, the centers for labor adaptation of convicts are effectively cooperating with individual entrepreneurs in organizing production in the territories of correctional institutions. Cooperation is mutually beneficial: being a state structure, the Federal Penitentiary Service is a reliable partner in commercial relations. At the same time, a social function is performed – convicts master new professions, engage in labor activities, have the opportunity to compensate for the damage caused by crimes, pay for claims, including alimony obligations.
The production facilities of the Federal Penitentiary Service allow expanding cooperation with business, therefore, the issue of attracting new commercial partners discussed at the meeting is always relevant.
In addition, there is the possibility of employment of convicts held in settlement colonies, at offsite facilities of organizations, for jobs that do not require high qualifications (cleaning, sorting, packing products, loading and unloading, repairing and washing vehicles, watering green spaces, etc.). etc.).
The Ombudsman became interested in attracting the business community of the Autonomous Okrug on the available free space on the territory of correctional institutions and labor resources.
The participants of the meeting are sure that the integration of small and medium-sized businesses into the production sites of correctional institutions will allow not only to positively solve the issues of employment of convicts, their social rehabilitation, but also to integrate the production potential of the penal system into the economy of the region.
