Representatives of the administrations and departments of the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the city of Krasnoyarsk, headed by the Minister of Economy and Regional Development of the Territory, Yevgeny Vasiliev, got acquainted with the range of products manufactured in penitentiary institutions, and also discussed the possibility of further interaction with the penitentiary department.

Before the start of the plenary part, the guests visited the main facilities of IK-22: hostels where convicts live, a dining room, a club. Particular attention was paid to the production complex of the women’s correctional colony, where a large garment production operates and produces food. The guests visited the section for the production of semi-finished products, where they not only looked at the conditions of the preparation process, but also tasted the finished products. In addition, the meeting participants were invited to visit a local store where the products of the penitentiary institutions of the region are sold.

Head of the GUFSIN of Russia for the Krasnoyarsk Territory, Major General of the Internal Service Nikolai Vasilyev, noted the long-term fruitful interaction of the institutions of the GUFSIN and the Government of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. In the region, joint projects are being implemented on the employment of convicts, the development of production activities of the penitentiary institutions of the region, including the agricultural sector, and the improvement of conditions of detention in places of confinement. At the same time, the number and amount of concluded and executed contracts and agreements for the supply of goods, performance of work and provision of services is increasing every year. So, in 2020, penitentiary institutions produced products and provided services for more than 3 billion rubles.

Nikolai Vasiliev drew attention to the fact that at present, the institutions of the department have every opportunity to expand the list of services and goods, including production facilities and labor force from among convicts subject to employment.

Particular attention was paid to considering the possibility of purchasing goods (works, services) in the institutions of the penal system as a single supplier.

All the participants in the meeting came to the unanimous conclusion that cooperation between the Main Directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the executive authorities is mutually beneficial, fruitful and should develop in the future.
