The prisoners of Arbuzynska colony do not have access to fresh water, and instead of toilets, they have to use holes in the Mykolaiv region. The office of ombudsman for human rights of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine reports this.
“The monitoring group was shocked because of the very poor living conditions for the convicts. The lack of sanitary hygiene conditions, lack of access to drinking water. Instead of toilets, they have to use holes, and instead of washbasins – metal boxes or buckets. The monitoring group has also outlined, that there is an uneven distribution of convicted to their cells, for example, 3 or 10 people can live in the same square”, - the report said.
According to the report, despite the consistent examination, no medical treatment is provided. Besides, the prisoners practically have no opportunity to spend the means they get for their work within the colony’s territories.
At that time, there are 386 convicts serving their sentences.
