MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The section of the colony-settlement at IK-6 (Nizhniy Tagil) of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service for the Sverdlovsk Region was visited by the journalists of the Telekon TV company Valeria Gorbunova and Andrey Belousov.
They talked with convicted women who, in their free time, make dolls from nylon and soft dolls for the puppet theater operating at IK-6 with their own hands. Then the performances are shown to kids from the Orphanage, where the children of convicted women up to three years old are brought up.
The process of creating toys is so exciting that women are confident that it will continue after their release.
Note that all the craftswomen are employed in the garment industry and other facilities of the colony, pay claims to the victims and take an active part in the cultural work of the institution.
Last year, IK-6 produced products worth 95 million rubles. The production of sewing products is being expanded here, new sewing equipment is being purchased.
