The occupants continue to build up the occupied territory of Crimea with new detention facilities. So, two new detention centers will have been built by 2025 on the peninsula, said the Deputy Director of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia Oleg Korshunov, as cited by Kafanews.

“Now we have already finishing the building of a detention facility on the basis of the penal colony No.12. So, by the end of this year there will be walls. As for the plans for the 2017-2025 years, a new detention facility (prison density 1,000 places) will be built in Kerch,” said Korshunov.

He noted that about 700 million rubles has been allocated to the prison project in Simferopol, and several billion rubles – to the detention facility near Kerch.

“However, we differ from other institutions - we need to be completely independent: we should operate in case of power or water outage,” said the Deputy Director of the Federal Penitentiary Service of the Russian Federation.

However, the occupants still have not decided on the land for the prison near Kerch. Korshunov believes that the "head" of Crimea Sergey Aksenov should address this issue.

As QHA reported earlier, the only detention facility in Crimea is crowded almost double.
