YEKATERINBURG, May 30 (Itar-Tass) - Four hundred inmates at maximum security penitentiary # 46 /IK-46/ in the town of Nevyansk, Sverdlovsk region, have stopped their disobedience action, and agreed to meet with the authorities and take food, the press service of the regional department of the Federal Penitentiary Service /FSIN/ told Itar-Tass.
"A check is underway into all the complaints voiced by inmates; the results will be announced shortly," the press service said.
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."
