Altai prisoners cut veins in court en masse
Four prisoners of the Barnaul detention center cut their veins in the courtrooms, Bankfax news agency reported.
On the morning of September 21, a series of attempted suicides happened in the Altai courtrooms. Prisoners in different courts of the city started cutting their arms at the same time. Anastasia Buchneva, an attorney, said that the convoy had a slow reaction and one of the defendants had enough time to cut his arms and neck. "I believe my client was doing self-harm for about five minutes," said the lawyer.
The press service of the Central District Court of Barnaul, where one of the protests occurred, regards what happened as a provocation rather than a suicide attempt. The prisoner inflicted surface wounds while worrying that he would get stained with blood. All the prisoners who had made the courtroom performances were taken to hospital.
This same group had arranged unusual performances before: they believe that the investigation of the cases against them was conducted inadequately. In August, they went on a hunger strike in Barnaul detention center No. 1, when one of the prisoners tried to sew his own mouth. According to journalists, the activist was a former thief in law Nikolai Kuzmin, known in criminal circles as Mladenets (“Infant”). However, the agency then reported that only two inmates refused to eat because they did not agree with the claims in their case files.
Businessman Mikhailov demands from Insider to remove two articles covering his membership in Solntsevskaya gang
In 2016, Mikhailov took advantage of the right to be forgotten, demanding Yandex and Google delete the hits on requests "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas," "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas Solntsevo," "Sergey Mikhailov Solntsevo" and other similar wording.
Vladimir Putin ordered the Service to “ensure suspects, defendants, and convicts live in conditions compliant with the Russian law and international standards” during a formal event held in the Kremlin on May 31. The event was held to celebrate officers and prosecutors promoted to higher-ranking positions and military ranks. Could it be that the Russian President paid this much attention to the Service due to a growing number of articles about bribery, murder, and scandals associated with the Service?
