YEKATERINBURG, June 19 (Itar-Tass) -Five additional meeting rooms and a mosque opened on Wednesday at the maximum security prison of Nevyansk, Russia’s Sverdlovsk region, following a disobedience action there on May 30.
Thus the Federal Penitentiary Service has met the main demands of inmates, sources from the press service of the Service’s regional department told Tass on Wednesday.
“Earlier there were three meeting rooms at maximum security prison IK-46. This was not sufficient. That is why the decision was made to open five more,” the press service said.
There are about 1,500 inmates of different nationalities and confessions at the prison at the moment. In 2005 the Prince Vladimir Church was built and consecrated for the Orthodox believers. A Sunday school was opened at the church, and 56 inmates attend it,” the press service said.
The prison administration has allotted premises for a prayer room for 348 Muslim inmates, but it is too small for all wishing to attend it. In June 2012 the construction of a new mosque for 100 people was launched. The mosque has been unveiled on Wednesday.
On May 30, two groups of inmates, 400 in all, staged a disobedience action. The inmates refused to march to the mess hall for breakfast and barricaded themselves in a room.
