Vladimir Ustinov resolutely comes out against shows of various contests held in prisons on TV
Russian Prosecutor General Vladimir Ustinov resolutely comes out against shows of various contests held in prisons on TV. "This is a way of promoting subculture. This is a disease of our society which should be cured," Mr. Ustinov said answering questions of the Federation Council members. In his opinion, there is no harm in prisoners' contests. "They committed crimes but they are living people and they can sing and dance. There is no harm in it. But the show of these contests on TV is a different matter," Vladimir Ustinov said. According to him, it may seem to victims of criminals that "life in prisons is good and convicts are having fun, singing and dancing." Another negative aspect of such TV programs is that young people start thinking that there is nothing terrible in prisons. The Prosecutor General denied the information of some media that winners of such creative contests are released on parole. "The information about the release on parole is a lie. This decision can be made by the court and not as a result of some contest," Mr. Ustinov stressed.
