The Telegraph: Кадры пыток в РФ были обнародованы благодаря белорусскому айтишнику

Кадры пыток и изнасилований заключенных в российских колониях правозащитникам передал белорусский программист. Он сам отбывал наказание в тюрьме в Саратове.

Его историю сегодня рассказало британское издание The Telegraph. По информации журналистов, беларус находился в Саратовской тюрьме и также подвергался жестокому обращению. Сергея вынудили сотрудничать с тюремной службой, и в течение этого времени он управлял компьютерной сетью тюрьмы, а также обеспечивал доступ к видеофайлам из всей российской пенитенциарной системы.

Russian prisoners were raped and tormented by guards in a “conveyer belt of torture”, according to an unprecedented leak of alleged handheld camera and CCTV footage that on Wednesday triggered a rare official investigation into state-sponsored wrongdoing.

One video appears to show a naked man being violated with a stick at a prison hospital treating tuberculosis patients in the central city of Saratov. The man, who is tied to his bed, is screaming in pain.

The clips have been released since late Monday by Russian anti-torture NGO and are part of what it described as a "secret video archive" of more than 1,000 files documenting systemic torture and sexual abuse at prisons across Russia.

They were obtained via a whistleblower and former prison detainee described as "our Edward Snowden" by’s head Vladimir Osechkin.

Although there have long been reports of such mistreatment, this amount of clear documentary evidence is unheard of and risks becoming a major embarrassment for President Vladimir Putin and his national security service (FSB).

"It is the first time that human rights defenders have obtained such a colossal amount of information proving the systemic nature of torture in Russia,” said Mr Osechkin.

The footage “proves that torture has become a mundane tool for the FSB and the Federal Penitentiary Service and that abuse and torture are widespread and endemic," he added.

"Torture is one of the elements of Vladimir Putin’s totalitarian system. That’s why they got so scared and are trying to prove they had no idea what was going on."

Mr Putin's spokesman initially sought to cast doubts on the videos' credibility.

"If the authenticity of these materials is confirmed, then, of course, this is a reason for a serious probe," Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday. "But first it's necessary to quickly but calmly sort this out and establish the authenticity of these materials."


However, on Wednesday their authenticity appeared to be confirmed after the region’s prison chief, the head of the prison infirmary and several other officials were dismissed, according to the Federal Penitentiary Service.

It added that “everyone implicated in those crimes will face justice”.

Russia's Investigative Committee, which deals with high-profile crimes, has also launched an investigation into "violent acts of a sexual nature".

The crime carries a maximum penalty of 10 years behind bars, but those involved are unlikely to face that. A wide-ranging report by the Committee against Torture in August found that almost half of all law enforcement officers convicted of torture only receive suspended sentences. is one of several rights groups and independent media outlets that fled Russia earlier this year as the Kremlin ratcheted up pressure against those exposing the corruption and crimes of Russian officials and Mr Putin’s inner circle.

Last month, Mr Putin's party United Russia won a national election but was hit with widespread allegations of rampant fraud after a landslide win despite polls showing its waning popularity.

Mr Osechkin said his NGO had already shared the footage with Russian authorities, the Council of Europe, and the United Nations.

He said his source was a Belarusian IT engineer identified as Sergey who was incarcerated in Saratov prison and also faced abuse.

Sergey was coerced into cooperating with prison officials, during which time he managed the prison's computer network and secured access to video files from the entire Russian prison system.

Igor Kalyapin, one of Russia’s most prominent activists fighting torture behind bars, said that while reports of such torture were not unusual, “what is unique is the fact that we were able to see it."

Male prisoners in Russia often face sexual abuse at the hands of other prisoners on the orders of the prison administration, in order to intimidate and blackmail them, he told the independent media outlet TV Rain.

“Those things are often done not only as punishment but in order to keep a person on a short leash,” Mr Kalyapin added.

@Он Самый и в чем я не прав? Просто поражаюсь тупости этих дегенератов. Сначала пытать человека а потом дать ему доступ ко всем доказательствам своих преступлений.


Прав, но сравнение неудачное
