Detention facility of city Kriviy Rig among convict has the name "Wheel".
26 Of february 2012

Regime corps of prison "Wheel". 


Name "Wheel" got detention facility of city Kriviy Rig due to the features of the architecture : it from above look like a circle. Hardly someone from зеків saw "Wheel" from the height of bird flight. But many it seemed that an exit was not from this reserved circle. Somebody from them, getting in "Wheel", was not really able from him to go out.

Detention facility. Here feeling of guilt for that did, buried under the press of that do with you. Guilt dissolves in pain and fear before new pain. Here does not "violate human rights" and does not "humiliate human dignity". Правозахисники and advocates talk about such high matters, who they are for. But all of them on other side of грат. It does not exist on this side from such concepts. The habitants of prison mainly expect a decreet, id est not confessed by guilty.

That does not rescue them from superhuman punishments, sometimes up to a higher measure, a long ago anniented our humane state that stamps to Europe, as a хитромордий cat on a chain.

Here is only зеки and jailers. They wind the terms for different parties of грат. In most jailers these terms more than at a contingent. And quite a bit they were deserved it to a full degree...

Official statistics lies often. Statistics of amount those, who departs punishment and expects the sentence of court, wrongs. She does not take into account those, who, being at liberty, a term departs together with the native and goes along with them on all stages. It is relatives of criminals and innocently convict; relatives those, who the system took away the sentence in a court. Grief of convict and their near mostly silent. As a rule, to them it is not been in strength to lead to something, - not only prison but also system is arranged the reserved circle of wheel for us. Although all of them are witnesses one and all.

Witnesses for the prosecution.

Iryna, to have convict that was in detention facility of city Kriviy Rig : "As in any regional center, there is detention facility in our Kherson, where bring suspected and accused from all area. And here him it was gathered to break up, seems, through rains, emergency state, does not know exactly. A son told to me about it on an appointment as early as July, when I arrived on his birthday. Then I did not give it the special value. Said: to the son, for you already sentence on a nose, soon will be in a camp.

But with August розселення of habitants of detention facility of city Kherson was begun in the different corners of Ukraine. They were sent in Djankoy, Zaporijia, Mikolayv. And guys from Kahovka got to Kriviy Rig. A map lay down so already. Well here and began.

My son yet was in Kherson and periodically established connections. And here I hear first, that he in panic, asks: мамо, do anything. Because terrible cases about the first two stages, that got to Kriviy Rig, became known. About frightful beating, that a jaw was broken someone.

Tell, that on 20 arrive shoot out persons 60 in masks, defence, with sticks, електрошокерами. A chairman is not touched, beat on feet, back, kidneys, stomach. Worldly-wise, from these beatings for convict meat unstucked from bones. Then give up in a punishment cell, where outpour water with a chlorine.

Talk, in Kriviy Rig even to tomentous relation for convict not such, as everywhere, because there lawlessness, and it is well known about it...

In Kherson with a son in a chamber a boy sat on a nickname Acetone.

it is drug Addict?

- No, it is a nickname on the last name. A son said, that had been відправлено first on Kriviy Rig, and a chairman was there broken through him. I contacted with a mother Ацетона, that not alone day rode on криворізьких hospitals, searching a son. In one of them she him and found. The state of him was heavy, and it was her to remain in Kriviy Rig, to be alongside.

Here, my son asked to ring up all Kakhovka, if to report that on August, 25 to Kriviy Rig a bus will go with the parents of етапованих. Parents tried to protest under detention facility. To them produced some fellow, prisoner that said, that in them all all right...

There was there television. Indeed, then they almost gave nothing in ether - a plot was двохвилинний. And the materials given by the parents of етапованих the workers of television did not turn.

Then information began to spread, that people that arrived to Kriviy Rig are quite not parents of ув'язнених, and market tradeswomen that was hired for money. All was finished thereon...

When it was said me, that and my son got to Kriviy Rig, I ревіла, yelled, I had the real hysterics. In fact I know miraculously, that there are not such uglinesses in our Kherson area, as in Kriviy Rig. At 3,5, that my son conducted in detention facility of city Kherson, we had no claims against administration. And already comparatively with Kriviy Rig, they in general sat well, though slept in turn, as places failing. I assume that some nuances, probably, could be. But no misunderstanding, claims were not. Monthly I rode on an appointment with a son.

Nobody prevented me, and all my transmissions came to him. A son always spoke with me very blithely, calmly. The point is that to this life he adjusted already, I had seen never, that he was even in the low-spirited state, not only beaten. It always was in a kind humour.

In Kriviy Rig a son stayed 12 days. He was back sent then, by the stage on Kherson. When he went out with me on connection, I did not simply know him to voice. With a son an accomplice passed in business, for him to have Russian, and father negro. I then asked a son about a that fellow: rumours walked, that he was strongly beaten in Kriviy Rig. A son answered: "Мамо, we were closed and beat bluntly. So lasted three twenty-four hours, I пісяю blood".

- Who it did do, on his words?

are Soldiers in masks...

14 guys that went along with a son the stage were departed by the courts, and them must send back to Kriviy Rig. They were loaded in the covered machines and brought on the railway station. There must place in the special carriages and send on Kriviy Rig. The doors of the covered machine were just opened, they were cut. Among them there were two orphans to protect that in general to nobody...

- From whom directly did you get this information?

- From these guys. In fact not secret, that connection is with prison. And first heard about it from the mother of one of them.

- Why did they do so?

-, not to get to Kriviy Rig.

- were not They sent?

- No, they remained in Kherson, in a hospital...

on September, 21 people called by phone my husband, said, that rode in Kriviy Rig took away the dead body of convict, in 1962 of birth. Said, that kill. He from the village of Korobki, it for ten minutes of ride from Kahovka. Man did not even tell me about it, I knew only, that a ring was from Kriviy Rig, and saw that he is places to the soba does not find...

Afterwards I intermingled with native this convict - with a brother, mother. A brother said, that he was killed in Crooked Розі. on September, 21 they arrived to take away a body, did not allow перевдягнути him. They it is said that must pay 900 hryvnyas in detention facility in a morgue. Delete a certificate, that a sharp heart failure became reason of death. Home he was brought in a coffin. Relatives of fellow and present person on funerals assert that the dead convict had the bruises on all body, dissected lip, eyebrows, broken through head...

I every day phoned to Kriviy Rig. Finally, on Septembers, 24, it was reported me, that confirmation of sentence came to my son and he відправлено to one of colonies of the Kherson area. Since on 12 days a son disappeared. Can imagine to the soba my state, in fact I did not know all this time, that with him. I оббила all thresholds, searching him. Only imagine my horror.

Once in the evening in doors a not high man, father of one, called of those, with whom my son was in a chamber. A son asked to pass that with him all all right, and to collect warm things. I was surprised, because already passed to him everything for a camp: from shampoo, socks - to the warm things.

From Kriviy Rig a son arrived in some rubber-boot in that the convict walk to the bath-house, without socks, in sporting trousers and t-shirt. It appeared, herein he stayed all 12 days to the stage. Then the first colds stood exactly. In addition, for them took away all meal, cigarettes, tea, sugar. Five or six days they were not simply without a dry ration, but in general without the hunk of bread - on water.

Fifth October a son arrived in Kherson. He was sent in a colony, where he serves time now. He passed a quarantine, him it was already heaved up on detachment. Now I am more or less quiet for him. But there, in Kriviy Rig, there are living people above that mock similarly. A son it is said that can not sleep until now, screaming of woman that was beaten stand in ears. And yet he said: "Than anymore you there bustle about at liberty, the beat more boys. Commissions come on the ground, second floor. The chamber of an increase mode, chamber is never shown them 517 and 524 and those, who sits" there.

I have much information about that takes place. It is difficult to live with this pain. Connection is with prisons, it be common knowledge. Sometimes someone can call by phone me from guys somewhere in four morning. We talk a hour about all in the world, although I did not see this man never in life. Know the name and age only. And that in the morning will leave the stage".

Lyudmyla, to have one of ув'язнених in "Wheel", ready to promulgate the last name after taking away to the son of sentence : "Talk, all of it lasts in "Wheel" during years. That fear that we saw in the eyes of our children it is impossible to pass. A son until now does not tell to me everything, that was there, although a not alone month passed already. I see that this horror sits in him. Much there blue and black from beatings. Beating begin at once, just they arrive there. They are produced from machines and meet sticks".

С. is also ready to promulgate the last name after the pronouncement of sentence : "We were brought to Kriviy Rig by train, planted in the covered machines and drove to prison. When we arrived, soldiers in masks, with sticks повикидали us from machines and began to beat. Beat so much. Then closed people on punishment cells. A punishment cell is given to whom seven twenty-four hours, to whom eight or nine. And there every evening from ninth-tenth people too beat very in earnest. I saw people, in that there are the crippled feet, hands, somebody from them got in a hospital.

Why beat, incomprehensible. So prison accepts...

Already then, when me it was heaved up in a chamber, I knew, that so it takes place always for them. Talk, in that clink it is tradition.

- If does it really so take place always, then why about it began to talk only now?

- Simply before in them there were not such mass stages from other areas. Kakhovka returned the stage, that is why and information went about mass beating in Kriviy Rig. And convict from Kriviy Rig - they already got used to it all, live so. They are local, sit there constantly, they in general have nowhere to go.

- And why does beat, how you think?

-Ламають people, and all... In chambers, in chambers, where the arrested hold out, there are sportsmen...

are the So-called "persons that help administration"?

-Ну so, "persons that help administration", they already there beat people, can a chairman in a rest room to push in, compel to work, to wear away to someone something, although so doing is impossible. But if a man disagrees, they beat her, then again on a punishment cell. There already a valorous brigade that guards "Wheel" beats this man. It is a matter of course. Frightful things are created there.

- And true, that in celled to tomentous there otherwise relation, more loyal than in other places?

- It so.

Father of one of guys that cut to the soba veins, in order to avoid етапування in detention facility: "Son talks, 13 guys cut veins. I asked him, why he did it. He tells me: "Father, you do not present to the soba, that is created there. I simply want nothing to tell". He does not want, that we were nervous. After a cut only and told briefly.

And today detention facility under the name "Wheel" is such from the large number of prisons and detention facilities of Ukraine, where it is considered that the mode here найсуворіший after somewhere. And here and rights for convict here continue to violate ... 


Chambers are for holding of convict of prison "Wheel".

Zhytomyr "eight".
20 Of february 2012


Zhytomyr prison in city boundaries. Kind from a south-east side.


Zhytomyr prison is known for that for almost age-old history from her not a single escape was accomplished. And, apparently, not by chance, on territory of famous "eight" today there is one of the greatest on Ukraine sectors for sentenced to capital punishment. Exactly the life term and bloody maniac Onoprienko depart here, on the account of that ten of the ruined souls.


The ancient Ukrainian city Zhytomyr arose up more than thousand years back on rocky ripas Тетерев, wherein Polesye is replaced by forest-steppe and where later a border passed between Orthodox Ukraine and catholic Poland. Quite a bit historical storms were to outlive to this city, and, as it is often, part of his history, as in a mirror, was reflected in history of his prison.


Part of present street Ватутина in Zhytomyr(from the Kyiv street to the turn westward) was before named Hippodrome. Name Hippodrome is explained by that on this street in the end XIX and at the beginning ХХ of century was hippodrome on that the elite of the Volhynia province gathered to look at gallops. On a hippodrome gallops were conducted not only. He was used and as the air field on that the legendary first airmen of Nesterov carried out flights, yefimov, Vasiliev, Utochkin et al.

At the beginning the XX century old Zhytomyr prison in the former monastic cells of the Jesuitic monastery in the center of city on the Lock mountain became close, and decided to build new prison on the left ripa Тетерев near the Berdychiv bridge(in place of present Тетеревских and Highway side-streets). Street of Leo Tolstoy, that conduced to this place, even built then, in the beginning named the Prison street.

But apparently at the supreme moment municipal head of Flexander Davidovskiy remembered that was in city more suitable place is a hippodrome. And can, governor a baron Chtachelberg Flor Aleksandrovich did not simply love a rapid ride, especially gallops, and aviation the more, and accepted a wise move - to close a hippodrome, and in his place to build prison. By the way, and the present Zhytomyr governors and mayors love all old to take and in them place build something a new.

Prison in place of former hippodrome began to build in 1907. For building a place was not very successful is a former bog. It was under building to hammer in piles from bog oak. On the other hand hampered miriness of locality to the prisoners to dig undermining for the feasance of escapes. 


Building was built on the so-called project of empress Catherine - from above it looks as a letter of  "Е". Then, when building became overgrown with completions, former tsar's инициал looked from above like the capital letter of city in transcription of the Slavic alphabet - "Ж". Made off building of new prison in 1914, where she is now.

229 chambers, that were intended for serving of imprisonment and of maintenance transit, following on the stage in places farther, were counted in clink. Zhytomyr prison was one of most strict in tsar's Russia. As far as the transition of power from one hands the contingent of prison changed in other.

Besides criminals her chambers were visited by rebels-students and losing dignity priests, red commissars and white officers, subjected to repression in different years by soviet power on political reasons. According to the archived data, in 30th in the apartments of prison carried out shooting sentences.


In time before the second world war and to occupation Zhytomyr prison behaved the German fascists to the department of the Folk commissariat of internal affairs.

To our days history reached about prison of those years. Without regard to the swift offensive of the German troops, administration of prison, in advance evacuating prisoners, neatly cleaned and washed down all regime apartments of prison and, leaving the keys from all chambers and apartments on a table in duty part, evacuated hastily, causing no harm to property and building. In November, 1943 broken in the district of Kyiv the German troops hastily retreated westward.

Not looking, on катастрофичесое position and swift offensive of Red Army, Germans acted just as well as former soviet administration of prison, they cleaned apartments and just left the keys from apartments on a the same place, where he was left by the совесткие guards of prison. 


Today this ancient prison is officially named Zhytomyr establishment of execution of punishment of maximal strength(№ 8) security. Former outskirts of -теперь are the densely populated dwelling district, so that " eight" now on several hundred meters is moved from a street Ватутина in the array of ordinary old concrete building, наываемых in people for the last names of former soviet leader - Khrushchev.


From official data, from Zhytomyr prison not a single escape really was accomplished. The last unsuccessful attempt, it is talked, was undertaken at the end of 70th. A few convict climbed over through some fence, but... appeared again on territories of prison, where they at once were accepted "in hard cuddles" by guards.

Now in complete accordance with status of "establishment with maximal strength security" prison is the mestome of maintenance of the most dangerous killers sentenced to life imprisonment. Today here are about 200 sentenced to capital punishment. Among them are criminal authorities, serial maniacs and педофилы, notorious Zhytomyr cannibals, former sale militiamen and lawyers. Almost at all on an account for a few murders.

On a 1 th floor there is a separation in that accept new convict(8 boxing) and during twenty-four hours distribute on chambers. A quarantine zone is there envisaged, where newly arrived a few weeks are for an exposure for them infectious and other illnesses. Contain all separately: minor, women, men, earlier not judge and those, who already departed punishment before.


Zhytomyr prison is well-known in neighbourhood the large list of the made products. In the workshops of industrial zone prisoners produce the great number of necessary in a municipal economy things : sidewalk tile, sections of дли of reinforce-concrete fences, containers for hard wastes, parapets, peaks, and also products of metal-workingness : safes, grates, garage gate and gates in a fence, металлопластиковые windows and other great deal. Зеки work honestly, the products " of eight" are quickly bought up therefore.

Exactly here first in Ukraine on works began to destroy and sentenced to life imprisonment. So that getting a higher measure punishments here pay it containingние. Chambers of пожизненников are in the separate wing of the first floor of building.

The mode of day is standard. At 6 o'clock of morning постовой declares getting up, at 22 o'clock - retreat. One hour in a day a walk is envisaged on fresh air in courts by an area about 25 square meters, equipped by horizontal bars and squared beams. The half-year for the term of life convict is settle an appointment with native: through glass and by phone, as in the American films.

A bath-house, shop, room of the psychological unloading, initial school and small chapel, equipped on the European standards, operate for the corporal and spiritual needs of all prisoners. One time per a week prison is visited by the Orthodox priest that baptizes appealings to God of зеков.

There is even the televisional studio. And in a sector for lifer practically in every chamber television is set with 38 cable channels.

Every day a librarian brings in chambers to sentenced to life imprisonment book, newspapers and magazines. Prisoners get three meal per day. He is fix 600 grammes of brown bread or 510 the wheat II sort, 80 grammes of groats, 20 - macaronis, 40 - meat, 30 - adiposes, 15 - sunflower-seed oil. For working a norm of feed is more: 30 grammes of sugar and 100 grammes of meat are additional. For tubercular patients there is a separate dietary feed, including cheese, eggs, vegetables, potato, sour cream, milk, curd and other.

A separate feed is envisaged for the persons injured from an accident at the Chornobyl nuclear power station. In most cases пожизненники depart punishment in pairs. Indeed, there are exceptions. To sit together with a serial murderer anatoliy Onoprienko other killers refuse categorically. Therefore the eternal term this villain leaves for a single chamber. On the account of Onoprienko at least 52 murders, perfect to them from 1989 to 1996 on territory of Ukraine. There are kill many very young children and babies in a number.

Interest of mass medias in this man is enormous. Here, indeed, Onoprienko journalists bothered terrible, and if before he gave to the interview, requiring the stick of sausage or box of candies for it, then now to intermingle with the press he in general refuses categorically. For the years conducted in clink, he never asked a local priest about confession and prayed never. Him nobody calls on and does not write letters to him.

Now Zhytomyr prison in the stage of reforms that is caused by changes in the legislation of Ukraine and universal гумманизацией societies, but however continues to carry out the basic functions, for the sake of what was постороена hundred years back.
