Glushchenko noted that the colony is the only way to draw attention to any injustice. He added that the Boers were often transferred for ridiculous reasons, but not for real violations. For example, when the time comes to ask for parole, attacks to the prisoners are increasing: violations are considered to be unbuttoned a button or missing a greeting with the employee of a colony (shake it every time you meet).

Prisoners ensure smooth operation of the industrial zone in exchange for concessions – cell phones, drugs and alcohol. According to the newspaper, the balance was broken after the employee IR beat “authoritative” the prisoner.
