Up to 114 people can be accommodated on an area of about two thousand square meters.
– The opening of the second correctional center in the Tambov region is due to the fact that the courts are increasingly assigning forced labor to convicts. It is important for us that they serve their sentences at the place of residence, as this helps to maintain and preserve their socially useful and family ties, – said Mikhail Kurban.
