Moscow Times | “They will break you”: inside Navalny’s new infamous prison house
Russian officials say arrested opposition leader Alexei Navalny will spend the next 2.5 years in a prison in the Vladimir region.
Russian media reported that Navalny will be in the IK-2 penitentiary. Former inmates told the Moscow Times about IK-2.
Konstantin Kotov, who was arrested during the 2019 election protests in Moscow and arrested “for repeatedly participating in unauthorized rallies,” said: “This is a very dense prison. They try to control every step and every thought.”
Kotov said that in the “standard regime” penal colony, prisoners remained in large barracks and had 150 beds in a hut. Kotov said that although the prison was said to be run by a “standard regime”, he thought it would be more appropriate to call it a “strict regime”; “Many people in different prisons in Russia have told me that this is one of the harshest prisons. IK-2 is like a high-security prison built for serious criminals,” he said.
“IK-2 is a completely illegal place. You will be broken there. Bad things have been happening there for a long time,” said Piotir Kuryanov of the Prisoners’ Rights Foundation. “The conditions there are very bad. The prison is next to a swamp. It’s cold, damp and the food is bad. It used to be a place of violence,” Kuryanovi said.
Kuryanov said those arrested on drug and theft charges had been sent to IC-2, and political criminals such as Vladimir Pereverzin had been punished there.
Dmitry Demushkin, a nationalist activist who spent two years in IK-2, also sent a message to the Moscow Times in prison that “being there was torture.”
Demushkin said he spent the first eight months in IK-2 in the popular Sector II. “I was not allowed to talk to other prisoners. I was not allowed to look at them. When I was not there, my hands were always behind my camera. I was not allowed to go to church or play sports.”
“There was a system that allowed daily torture and humiliation,” said another former prisoner.
