- As they say in the army, hazing is worse than hazing. Nobody beat me, but drive me crazy the FSIN system can use absolutely legal methods, - notes Dmitry Demushkin, the former head of the nationalist movement "Russians" (banned in the Russian Federation).

Demushkin served at the Pokrov for over 2 years.

Demushkin spent the first eight months in the sector of enhanced control "A" (abbreviated - FEMALE). After the change of leadership in 2017, the prisoners of IK-2 were divided into three groups: "A", "B" and "C". If in "B" you can work and feel relatively calm, then in "A", as local prisoners joke, you are only allowed to breathe.

- In sector "A", where Navalny will go after quarantine, you cannot talk, - the former prisoner continues. - All the time - legs together, head down, hands behind the back. Scratch your nose only with the permission of the administration. You stand for eight hours, sit for eight hours, sleep seven and a half hours. At the same time, only activists (prisoners who cooperate with the administration) are walking around. In the presence of each activist, Navalny will have to get up. Such a vanka-vstanka. It is strictly forbidden to communicate with convicts. The activists will start a journal on him, where they will write down every word. Up to the question "Can I go to the toilet?" and the answer is "Yes". Every morning this magazine is taken to the operative department for checking.
