The head of the Federal Penitentiary Service for the Saratov Region, Colonel of the Internal Service Alexey Fedotov (pictured) submitted a letter of resignation after a scandal arose over the torture of prisoners undergoing treatment in a prison hospital.

“He is currently on vacation, from which he may not return to work”, - an informed source told Interfax, confirming that Fedotov had indeed submitted his resignation report.

This was also reported by Vzglyad-Info, referring to the Public Monitoring Commission. However, the press bureau of the FSIN does not comment on the situation.

Earlier, Versiya Saratov, citing the founder of the * project, Vladimir Osechkin, writes that human rights defenders have at their disposal more than 40 gigabytes of materials exported from Russia. These are more than a thousand video files of the Federal Penitentiary Service, which should confirm the systemic nature of torture in the colonies and pre-trial detention centers of the Irkutsk, Saratov and Vladimir regions.

Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov stated the need to "sort out" the situation with torture and rape of prisoners in the hospital of the regional Federal Penitentiary Service of the Saratov Region.
