Two groups of IK-46 inmates refused to have breakfast earlier in the day. The FSIN said they were dissatisfied with prison conditions and medical service.
According to member of the regional public observer commission Vyacheslav Bashkov, the protest had started because of violence committed by prison personnel and some of prison "activists."
