Thank Khamzat Ingush: Monomakh soldiers quell unrest in Vladimir prison
The mock riot was as close to reality as possible: it was believed to have been initiated by particularly dangerous prisoners, who generally include thieves in law, mafia enforcers and criminals employed by crime syndicates.
After the revolt started by thief Khamzat Aushev’s family members and confidants near the walls of the legendary Vladimir Central Prison, one of Vladimir colonies arranged a large-scale training to curb violent unrest of inmates. According to the Federal Penitentiary Service for the Vladimir region, a few days ago, in Vladimir’s colony № 3, a joint detachment of the local correctional facilities was trying to master an outbreak of violent convicts.
The cover story was as close to reality as possible: the riot was believed to have been initiated by particularly dangerous prisoners, among whom generally are thieves in law, mafia enforcers and criminals employed by crime syndicates.
The event planners had come up with a whole story where the inmates allegedly seize a sensitive site early in the morning. The first step the Federal Penitentiary Service took was setting up a command unit that together with Monomakh special detachment conducted a special operation to quell the unrest.
The organizing team has been satisfied with the outcome. The staff showed "a clear and concerted action in the emergency situation" which proved their combat readiness.
You may recall that the last abnormality happened at Vladimir colonies not so long ago. This year, on March 21, family members and confidants of thief Khamzat Aushev (aka Khamzat Ingush) surrounded Vladimir Central Prison. The gathering had been provoked by a message that prison officers had beaten the thief to death. Only warning shots managed to calm the crowd.
