The new facility in Kola, accommodating 53 forced laborers, is a successful example of a public-private partnership.

The opening ceremony was attended by: Deputy Governor of the Murmansk Region Vladimir Evmenkov, Acting Head of the Territorial Authority Alexei Knyazkin, Regional Ombudsman for Human Rights Mikhail Shilov, Head of the Ministry of Justice Department for the Murmansk Region Marina Salokho, representatives of the Kola District Administration, the Prosecutor’s Office and the regional business community.

The emergence of new institutions on the basis of facilities of regional enterprises and organizations became possible thanks to the interaction of the management of the Federal Penitentiary Service and the National Association of Professional Staffing in Construction and Industry.

The result of the joint work was the creation in the city of Kola of a section of a correctional center based on the property of ST LLC, where the first 27 guests were accommodated, who will be involved in the construction industry. It should be noted that correctional center No. 1 is already functioning in the Murmansk region, designed for the simultaneous stay of 112 convicts employed at various enterprises in the city of Olenegorsk.

* Forced labor carried out in correctional centers is an important step in the process of humanizing the execution of punishments. Convicts live in conditions close to ordinary life, do not lose socially useful ties, provide for themselves, compensate for the damage caused by crimes, receive professional skills that they can implement after being released.
