The parties discussed the possibility of building dormitories near a large construction holding based on the principle of modular housing construction for the living of those sentenced to forced labor.
During the meeting, the head of the GUFSIN, Konstantin Bereznev, noted that two sections have already been created in Kuzbass, functioning as a correctional center at IK-29 and IK-44. All those convicted in them are employed at various enterprises of municipalities at the place of their deployment. It is planned to open a third institution of this type at IK-40. It is planned to spread the positive experience of development of correctional centers in the region in the city of Novokuznetsk.
The general director of the company, Konstantin Ivushkin, confirmed his interest in creating an infrastructure for the residence and employment of those sentenced to forced labor. Labor resources are in great demand at an enterprise that builds large industrial and social facilities.
An important factor is the fact that on the basis of Part 2 of Art. 60.7 of the Criminal Executive Code of the Russian Federation, organizations using the labor of convicts for forced labor are provided with tax benefits in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation.
The enterprise today has extensive experience of interaction with the regional GUFSIN. For three years now, more than 50 convicts from the colony section of the settlement at LIU-16 have been going to work every day. Among the workers are welders, turners, milling operators. In the process of working, convicts can improve their professional qualifications.
In addition, the organization’s management is implementing a program for the employment of former convicts. Moreover, among this category of workers there are examples of successful career growth.
Deputy Head of the GUFSIN Sergey Churin, who is taking part in the meeting, noted that the production facilities of the Penitentiary System of Kuzbass have great potential for cooperation with the Sibshakhtostroy company. During the meeting, various types of metalworking products that can be manufactured in correctional institutions of the region were considered. A decision was made to conclude a multimillion-dollar contract for the production of metal products in IK-41.
