MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the correctional colony No. 3 in the village of Kharp, the manufacture of tents, a craft of the indigenous peoples of the North, has been organized. For this, the convicts mastered the professions of a carpenter, stove-maker and furrier. In addition, the colony was not limited to just the frame and fur walls. Here they offer their customers a dwelling completely ready for living: with floors, a stove and even simple furniture. Mobile dwellings come out of the workshops ready to use, equipped with everything needed to live in the harsh conditions of the tundra. Manufactured plagues fully meet the requirements for them.
The convicts began to sew nyuki for tents and other products from reindeer skins back in 2013. Since March of this year, when the families of nomads in the region began to issue “freaky” capital, the work of the convicts has increased. Recently, the institution received a new batch of one and a half thousand pieces of reindeer skins. After two weeks of drying, they are sent to dressing. There, their fate will be decided after sorting.
In order for the raw material to be suitable for the winter covering of the plague, it must initially be cleaned, washed, processed, and only then the sewing of nukes begins. If at some stage the material is damaged, it will not be scrapped, but a carpet or shaman tambourine will be made.
As the deputy head of the institution, Alexander Obraztsov, noted, about 60 convicts with a salary of more than 10 thousand rubles were employed in the production of chums. Convicts gain work experience, pay for claims, accumulate the insurance part of their pension, which is important for their social adaptation after release.
It should be noted that the plague in the colony is sewn according to traditional technologies, by hand. It takes two weeks of painstaking work to make one product.
So, 20 plague kits from the penal colony have already gone to the Tazovsky, Priuralsky and Yamal districts of the district. 15 more are on the way – they, too, will soon serve as a reliable home for nomads.
