“After release, it is important to provide comprehensive support to the convict so that society is ready to accept him,” said Sergei Fedorchuk. – It is necessary to create conditions under which such important social projects would give maximum results.

Evgeny Ivanov presented to the forum participants his project “Start from scratch”, which is being implemented in Russia for the first time.

– Now in the first place are the issues of resocialization, that is, the return of people who have stumbled into society, especially if they are teenagers, – said the author of the idea.

The roundtable participants supported the idea of ​​making three Siberian regions – Krasnoyarsk Territory, Novosibirsk and Tomsk Regions a single center for the re-socialization of inmates of colonies. In the future, the best practices of interaction between the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, territorial authorities and non-profit organizations can be implemented on a national scale.
