The Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia (FSIN) issued a calendar for employees with scenes of the death penalty, according to the Deputy Head of the Office of the Federal Antimonopoly Service for Saint-Petersburg Peter Yakovlev as cited by the MR7 Russian edition.
“I do not know how to comment”, Yakovlev summarized.
It is known that the calendar was printed for management providing the activities of Federal Penitentiary Service operational units. The image of the department emblem is against the backdrop of the Russian tricolor and the signature "The highest measure of social justice" (death penalty was called in such a way in USSR) is situated below.
Historical references, illustrations (Richtschwert, Vlad the Impaler) quotations (Terry Pratchett, Woody Allen) were given to each execution type. January is dedicated to the guillotine, February is to "beheading", June is to "landing on the stake," August is to stoning, September is to crucifixion.
Earlier, a textbook for emigrants, in which the annexed Crimea was noted as a part of the Russian Federation, was issued in Germany.
