VIP cell for Ulyukaev in Tver
The ex-Minister gets food three times a day, he was freed from exercises, roll call and work.
Former Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukaev, convicted for a bribe, is serving his sentence in a renovated cell in the medical unit, Telegram channel Mash reported.
“Ulyukaev gets food three times a day with delivery to the cell and can also take a rest during nap time,” says Mash.
In addition, the former Head of the Ministry of Economic Development is released from exercises, roll call and work. Such conditions, according to the Telegram channel, were created for Ulyukaev after the ex-Minister bought drugs for the medical unit of the colony.
On December 15, 2017, the Zamoskvoretsky District Court of Moscow imposed a fine of 130 million rubles on Ulyukayev and sentenced him to 8 years in prison for receiving a bribe of $2 million from the Head of Rosneft Igor Sechin. The ex-Minister serves the sentence and works as a librarian in a colony in Tver.
The Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) commented on information about the allegedly mitigated regime of Ulyukayev’s incarceration.
The department said the reports in the media collided with reality, and the former Minister was kept in a strict regime penal colony on general terms, lived in one of the detachments and was employed.
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
