About the project
The Federal Penitentiary Service (FPS) confirms that there are 474 children up to 3 years old in Russian penal correction system (the data for 01/04/2019). In our previous project named «Prohibition on breastfeeding» we told about women who became mothers in detention sites. In this project we will tell about injuries among children in isolators, about sexual violence and infant mortality in correctional institutions of Russia and Kazakhstan. According to experts, the executive systems of both countries are very similar. They look like twins born by the same parent — GULAG (Main Administration of Camps). We tell different stories which occurred in these countries to compare and reveal trends.
