Rambo was sentenced to 17 years 11 months and sent to serve sentence in correction facility of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in Kirov region. According to sources, Rambo bribed officers of the Federal Penitentiary Service and agreed to be transferred to penal colony settlement. When this became known and he would return to high-security penal colony, he was transferred to the district hospital under the supervision of the very same guard.
