    franco wrote: Number of prisoners in Russia hits record low

    Russia enjoys a record-low number of inmates, thanks to “humanization” of the penal code, deputy chief of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) has said, adding that the number of jailed people is expected to shrink further. Over the past few years, the number of inmates in Russia has dropped by nearly 250,000, the FSIN deputy head, Valeriy Maksimenko, told journalists on Friday.

    Currently, 467,000 people are serving jail terms, which is the lowest number in modern Russian history.

    Apart from that, some 100,000 are in pre-trial and police custody, Maksimenko added. While the figure appears to be quite big, the number of such people actually shrank two-fold, compared to six years ago.

    The decline in the number of the prisoners is the tangible result of “humanization” of Russian legislation, the official said. The number of inmates is expected to shrink further, as the authorities seek to put people behind bars only for capital offences, committed “against individual or state.”

    A new law, signed by Vladimir Putin this summer, has also contributed to the reduction of inmate numbers, according to Maksimenko. The legislation has set new rules for re-calculating time spent in pre-trial detention into jail days after sentencing. A day spent in pre-trial custody now counts as 1.5 days in jail for general security prisoners and as two days for low-security ones. For maximum and special-security prisoners, sentenced for serious and violent crimes, however, it goes day-for-day only. The new legislation has had a retroactive effect, and convicts had their jail time re-calculated according to the new rules.

    Proof that Russia is under the tyranny of Putin.

    I put forth the claim that the size of the prison population is a metric on the real political and economic freedom of a country subject to one caveat.
    That the population is not conforming to some cultural behaviour pattern like Japan and is a non-conforming type of culture like in Russia.   But even
    Japan would experience a crime wave if it underwent the economic depression that Russia experienced in the 1990s.

    The US clearly fails at being a democracy and real economic paradise.   Even it being a police state with cops shooting unarmed blacks in the back
    clearly does not act to reduce its prison population and actually increases prisoner numbers.   Russian cops and their kid gloves treatment of
    gross law violators like Navalny and his lemmings who used to block major streets even though they had demonstration permits for more sane
    venues shows that power has a certain level of respect for the population.   This power is actually trying to reduce the number of prisoners
    instead of stuff jails full of inmates to enrich their corporate buddies.  


    You do realize Russia hands out low sentences for crimes right?. You can go watch Russian prison documentaries for example where they say "Thus guy killed like three people, he will be here for 15 years".

    That statistic isn't impressive when you realize just how soft they are are handing out sentences, you have to do some REALLLLLY fucked up n Russia to get a life sentence.

    Yes, it's soft, yet not so different from European countries.
    Soviet Union wasn't that harsh either. Wink

    Communist ‘terrorists’ arrested in Russia: detainees insist Soviet Union never collapsed, say they’re its rightful leaders

    https://www.rt.com/russia/507301-militant-marxist-group-volgograd/

    Three suspected members of a militant Marxist group have been arrested in the southern Russian city of Volgograd. But, while police say the men are “terrorists,” they claim they are the country’s rightful leaders.

    According to a statement from the district court on Thursday, one of those in custody, a 41-year-old named only as Sergey M, reportedly describes himself as “the Acting Head of all offices, without exception,” laying claim to “all pre-existing objects and subjects of law in the Volgograd Region.”

    The investigation alleges that the trio are part of the Union of Slavic Forces, a proscribed political organisation that urges its activists not to pay taxes or acknowledge the laws of Russia, which they claim is an illegitimate state. Instead, they argue that they are “citizens of the USSR.” In the past, prosecutors have brought charges against similar outfits that have promoted terrorism to achieve their radical aims.

    In May, a criminal case was brought against another communist activist in the Ural city of Kurgan. Lyubov Kudryashova was accused of justifying terrorist acts in support of the restoration of the Soviet Union, as part of her suspected involvement with an extremist group, the Movement for the Restoration of the Rights of Citizens of the USSR......

    And my favourite part:

    .....Kudryashova had previously claimed to hold high office within the Union, which she believes was never actually dissolved. In 2019, she resigned from her “powers as the head of the USSR Foreign Ministry.” The court appointed a forensic medical examiner to conduct a psychiatric evaluation of the case.

    I love how they refuse to give them even basic level of respect that these shit-stains thing they are entitled to    Razz


    Still it's always good too keep notes from Operation Condor handy just in case, this human cancer needs to be kept in check at all times  sniper

    These terrorists are not just clowns, they are NATzO agents. The same sort of shit was engaged in terrorism before 1917 in
    Russia. Dostoyevsky even wrote a book about them.

    All those trying to ram "goodness" down your throat are the worst sort of scum. Russia needs to liquidate this trash without
    mercy. Before 1917 it was way too soft on them.

    19th century Russian writer Ivan Turgueniev did publish a book on these "nihilists" too: Fathers and Sons.
