VLADIMIR, June 14. /TASS/. Blogger Alexey Navalny has been transferred from a standard-security prison in Pokrov to a maximum-security prison in Melekhovo in the Vladimir Region, Sergey Yazhan, chairman of the regional public oversight commission, told TASS on Tuesday.

On June 14, Alexey Navalny's lawyers told TASS that the blogger had been transferred from a prison in Pokrov, Vladimir Region, to a maximum-security prison after the verdict in his fraud case came into force. "He arrived at IK-6 and is there," Yazhan said, referring to the prison by its name.

Lyudmila Romanova, the commissioner for human rights in the Vladimir Region, told TASS on Tuesday that the prison has a good reputation.
