Journalists are told about conditions in which billionaire from FSB Kirill Cherkalin held in prison
Members of the public monitoring commission of Moscow visited the former FSB employee in jail.
Detained for corruption, Colonel of the FSB, Kirill Cherkalin, "fervently prays in the Lefortovo prison cell," URA media reports. It is also known about sports, to which the prisoner devotes part of his time. In the jail, he was visited by members of the Moscow Public Observation Commission.
They concluded that Cherkalin is held in a repaired cell with all conveniences. His cellmate decorated the walls of the cell with icons. The image of the saints also appeared to be on the back of the bed. According to the author of one of Kommersant’s materials about Cherkalin, his cell began to resemble a prayer room or a monastic cell. Cherkalin himself has already started growing a beard in jail. The ex-colonel of the FSB devotes time to sports – he squats and wrings.
Cherkalin told public figures that he was satisfied with everything in prison and confirmed that he was treated well by prison staff. Cherkalin praised the prison food, especially noting the soup with buckwheat, potatoes and chicken.
Recall that the FSB officer during the search of the apartment, similar to the money warehouse, found 12 billion rubles ($186mln). A country house with oval cabinets and a collection of equipment was also found in his possession. A similar amount can be on the offshore accounts of the ex-employee of the FSB.
