This was announced by Deputy Director FSIN Valery Boarini at the round table on the issues of prisoners, the correspondent of RBC.

According to Bojarinova, received a lot of complaints that the convicts sent to serve his sentence in the remote regions. Particularly acute was the situation of prisoners from Moscow and the Moscow region, where “almost no detention facilities”. Because of this, their five or six years ago were sent to Siberia and the Urals.

“Today, they are usually sent to serve his sentence in correctional institutions in the Central Federal district, or in some regions of the Volga Federal district, which are adjacent to the Central Federal district”, — said the Deputy Director of the Federal penitentiary service. He noted that the only exception is for convicted law enforcement officers, and for those who have been convicted of terrorism and other serious crimes, the punishment for which envisages a special regime.

Boarini said that 80% of prisoners currently serving their sentences at the place of residence or at the place of Commission of the crime.
