Ruslan Romashkov, the Head of Boryspil Penal Colony #119 has become the new Head of Kyiv Remand Center more known as Lykyanivska Prison. Yury Maslak, the spokesperson of Deputy Justice Minister Denys Chernyshev claimed this as 112 Ukraine reported.
"Now the introduction of a new head takes place. It will be Ruslan Romashkov. To this day, he occupied the post of the Head of Penal Colony #119," Maslak said.
The other personnel of the renewed administration of the prison will be announced next week.
"Taking about the old administration of Lykyanivska Prison, today the head of the prison signed the letter of resignation. Also, the personnel will be replaced: deputy head for regime work, first deputy head, deputy head for operative work, deputy head for educational work. All these posts will be occupied by other people. I think it will be decided next week," he said.
However, he does not comment on the interconnection of these events with the riot of "Tornado" officers.
"The Military Prosecutor's Office holds the investigation, everything is recorded, and we held the internal investigation. All fact reported by Anatoly Matios were found. We will not cover anyone: the dismissal or the letter of resignation does not exempt anyone from the liability. If a person is guilty or allowed some violations, he will be responsible," Maslak emphasized.
Earlier, on August 9 clashes between the citizens and law enforcers occurred during transferring of ex-fighters of Tornado near Lukyanivska Prison.
As a result, three Tornado fighters, kept in Lukyanivska Prison, were transferred and the others were put in an isolation cell. As the representatives of the Justice Ministry informed, one law enforcer got injured as the fighters used handmade firecrackers. Moreover, it was reported that Tornado fighters poured petrol on a law enforcer and threatened to burn him.
Earlier, two workers of Lukyanivska Prison passed Tornado fighters the prohibited items.
Pavlo Petrenko, Ukraine’s Justice Minister announced severe administrative decisions concerning Lukyanivska Prison workers soon.
