Khinshtein on hostage-taking in a pre-trial detention center: “Many will have to answer for what happened with their shoulder straps”

State Duma deputy Alexander Khinshtein believes that the taking of hostages in the Rostov-on-Don pre-trial detention center is the result of insufficient prevention of extremism and the spread of destructive ideas in the FSIN system. According to him, those convicted of attempting a terrorist attack were placed in the same institution, where they had mobile phones.

“Earlier, I already drew attention to the problem of green zones. I believe that, given the urgency of the terrorist threat, it is necessary to intensify work in this direction, and the leadership of the Federal Penitentiary Service must draw appropriate conclusions. And yes, many will have to answer for what happened with their shoulder straps,” — Khinshtein wrote in his Telegram channel.

The incident took place in a pre-trial detention center in Rostov-on-Don, where six defendants, including those convicted of terrorist crimes, knocked out the window bars and entered the duty room of the pre-trial detention center. There they took hostage the head of the operational department, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander B., and the junior inspector of the duty service. To date, all six have been eliminated.

The Main Directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service for the Rostov Region recently published a report on the work of the Rostov pre-trial detention center, which emphasized the importance of ensuring the isolation of accused and convicted persons, as well as the preparedness of employees for stressful situations and their integrity.

“Security officers are responsible for isolating accused, suspects and convicts held in a pre-trial detention center. They do not allow them to escape and do not allow anyone from the outside to help them with this. They must be prepared for stressful situations and loads, have good intellectual and physical abilities. But the most important thing is that they must be vigilant and incorruptible.”, the article said.

However, this incident calls into question the effectiveness of these measures and highlights the need for improved control and prevention.
