No one to plant: why prisons are closed in Russia


In Russia, the minimum number of prisoners in recent history has been recorded. At the moment, 483 people are serving time in correctional institutions of the country, which is almost half the average of the same figure in the 000s. Empty prisons are closing.


In addition, the aforementioned figure also indicates that the crime rate in our country is much lower than in the United States. Today, Russia occupies as much as 24th in the ranking of countries in terms of the number of prisoners per 100 thousand of the population.

It is worth noting that the above result is not an accident. The decline in the number of prisoners is directly related to the decline in crime in our country. So, since 2010, the indicator for murders and causing grievous bodily harm has decreased by half, for robbery, robberies and burglaries - three times, and for theft of vehicles - four times. The number of road accidents has also decreased by almost a third.

One of the main reasons for the significant improvement in the criminal situation in Russia was the gradual “sobering up” of the nation. As statistics show, the amount of alcohol consumed by the population today is almost half as much as in the same 2011, and in fact more than 70% of murders are committed while intoxicated.

Another important factor was the decline in the attractiveness of the “criminal career”. Unlike the 90s, where the image of a bandit was glorified and promised prospects, modern youth chooses civilized ways of self-realization and earnings.

Thus, we can state that we have finally begun to "recover" and understand that good and justice are stronger than evil. At the same time, the world is dominated by the opposite trend to the Russian one, where the “driving force” is mainly the United States, China and Brazil.

    for all sorts of aquariums: in 2020, about two dozen were convicted under Articles 280 and 282. for anti-Semitism and dislike of Caucasians with Asians. among them are several fans of the "Russian march", who believe that Novorossia is a Jewish project and that Russia is in vain destroying the "white brothers" of the Banderaites. And none of those who would gladly strangle a dozen Svidomo.

      And the ministers are sitting, and the governors are sitting, and the deputies are sitting, and the directors of enterprises are sitting, and all this without unnecessary noise and fanfare ... And, for example, in the neighboring "independent power" a special "anti-corruption bureau has been created" and a special " anti-corruption prosecutors ", which are controlled directly from" fascinatington ", and everything is not useful, despite the fact that their employees receive astronomical salaries under one hundred thousand hryvnia, for 7 years not only a single high-ranking official has not been arrested, but not even a single one criminal case on those ...

    The number of premeditated homicides in Russia is still 1,5 times higher than that of the United States and is very much higher than Western European figures.
    Success in decriminalizing Russians is obvious - a fact.

        In Russia, 7+ murders per 100 thousand in 5 states - count objectively.
        The population of the United States is 340 million, the Russian Federation is 142, in the states there are 1,8 times more prisoners per 100 thousand - fact.
        But for objectivity it is worth looking at the statistics on the Council of Europe -
        The highest incarceration rates were still observed in Russia (418,3 inmates per 100 inhabitants), Georgia (252,2), Azerbaijan (235), Lithuania (234,9), Republic of Moldova (215,2), Latvia (194,6), Poland (194,4), Czech Republic (208,8), Estonia (191,4), as well as in several other countries. The lowest levels of the prison population (excluding states with a population of less than 300) were noted in Iceland (000), Finland (46,8), the Netherlands (51,1), Sweden (54,4), Denmark (56,5 , 63,2), Slovenia (61,1) and Norway (65,4).

          AlexznWe've all witnessed countless violations of the law in the United States just recently. I am sure that these crimes were not included in the statistics.

          Can you refute the video data? No you can not. You have not denied that in terms of the number of prisoners per one hundred thousand of the population, Russia today occupies the twenty-fourth place in the world, etc.

          This is a screenshot from Wikipedia, data from ICPR (International Center for Prison Research).

          But for objectivity it is worth looking at the statistics on the Council of Europe -
          The highest incarceration rates were still observed in Russia (418,3 inmates per 100 inhabitants)

          For objectivity, it is not enough to look at the statistics of the Council of Europe, it is also necessary to compare it with the one provided in the article, and if it does not coincide, check it, preferably using primary sources.
          418,3 per 100 thousand, that's 4 per million, or 639 480 people... by 146 million people.
          We look at the statistics of the FSIN:

          As of March 1, 2021 in institutions of the penal system held 479 400 people... (-3 people by 432), including:

          - served sentences in 670 correctional colonies 372 524 people... (-3 891 people), including in 106 colonies-settlements 29 347 people were serving their sentences. (-406 people), in 7 correctional colonies for those sentenced to life imprisonment and persons for whom the death penalty by way of pardon was replaced by imprisonment, 1 people were serving their sentences. (+971 people);

          - 209 people were held in 86 pre-trial detention centers and 104 rooms operating in the regime of a pre-trial detention center. (+639 people);

          - 8 people were serving their sentences in 1 prisons. (+281 people);

          - in 18 juvenile educational colonies - 956 people. (+7 people).

          There are 39 women (-199 people) in institutions, including 186 in correctional colonies, medical correctional institutions, medical and preventive institutions, educational colonies and 29 in pre-trial detention centers and premises operating as a pre-trial detention center. The women's colonies have 835 orphanages with 9 children.

          https://fsin.gov.ru/structure/inspector/iao/statistika/Kratkaya%20har-ka%20UIS/

          By the way, 104 639 people. this is about 23% who have not been convicted, which means that they are in custody pending trial and not all of them will go to prison. After 2, maximum 6 months, more than half of them will take to the streets.

          the share of punishments alternative to imprisonment exceeded 70%

          https://www.interfax.ru/interview/720461

          Since the data does not match, I also found your statistics, they are for 2018.
          https://www.coe.int/ru/web/portal/news-2019/-/asset_publisher/gaVFYRTI7hqZ/content/europe-s-rate-of-imprisonment-falls-according-to-council-of-europe-survey?

          Yesterday the Council of Europe published fresh statistics, in it ....

          data for both 2019 and 2020

          If anything, we could collect data at least for 2020, tea did not run around the world, data only for Europe.

          The highest rates of prison population in January 2020 were observed in Turkey (357 prisoners per 100 inhabitants), Russia (000), Georgia (356), Lithuania (264), Azerbaijan (220), Czech Republic (209), Poland (197 ), The Slovak Republic (195) and Estonia (193). Excluding countries with populations of less than 184, the lowest prison population levels were found in Iceland (300), Finland (000), the Netherlands (45) and Norway (50).

          Tellingly, the data for Russia do not coincide with the data of the Federal Penitentiary Service, obviously the Council of Europe indicated information on those held in correctional colonies.
          Yes, we still have a lot more than the EU average, although the decline is obvious. And in my opinion the approach to statistics differs. We consider not only those in the colony. It is necessary to understand the types of punishment in the EU, I fully admit that they have their own system of punishment and detention, which is not considered a prison. In general, you need to delve into.

          In Russia, 7+ murders per 100 thousand in 5 states - count objectively.

          The total number of registered murders has been consistently decreasing in the country. Behind
          over the past 5 years, their number has decreased by a third (from 11,3 thousand to 7,7 thousand.).
          (Monthly collection for December 2020. Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation)
          http://crimestat.ru/analytics

          I counted, I got about 5,2 per thousand people. (count, maybe wrong). Probably your data on murders is also outdated, but they are changing.

          As for the United States, I did not find fresh statistics, there are for 2018 - 16 (approximately 214 per 4,8 thousand)
          https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2018/crime-in-the-u.s.-2018/tables/table-1

          There is still 2019 for 16. That's all.
          https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2019/crime-in-the-u.s.-2019/topic-pages/tables/table-1

          Probably there is an explanation for this, they are not particularly in a hurry to publish it, because:

          Compared to 2019, the number of murders in the United States increased by 30% last year.

          https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/4672341

          On the Internet, I came across such an interesting graph. In my opinion, it quite clearly reflects the dynamics of the number of murders.


          And certain publications continue to stuff us with quite specific information, like this one praising a beautiful and safe country overseas (article less than a month) laughing :

          Generally speaking and based on statistics, today the crime rate in the United States is quite low. This is especially clearly demonstrated by such an indicator as the number of murders per 100 thousand people: in the United States it is 5,35. Of course, in such developed European countries as Germany or Norway, the indicator will be even lower, but if you compare America, for example, with Russia, then the difference is simply enormous. So, in the Russian Federation, as many as 10 murders are committed per 100 thousand people.

          https://visasam.ru/emigration/canadausa/prestupnost-v-ssha.html

          In general, the murder rate in Europe is probably lower and we have something to work on in this direction, but the downward trend is obvious.
          By the way, how are things with this in Israel and with prisoners too?

            About dynamics - I have written - still more.
            In Israel, the number of premeditated murders today is about the same as in Zap. Europe (despite the fact that with 20% of the population, Arabs give more than half of all murders). We have more prisoners than the Western European figure - around 220. Israel is a fairly safe country by any measure.

          Another small addition on this issue, so to speak for objectivity ...

          Killings recorded and attempted murder (Articles 30, 105, 106, 107 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation)
          Total for the Russian Federation: 7695

          http://crimestat.ru/21

          Accounting for murders goes along with attempts, and as you know, not all of them end in fact, pardon the tautology, murder. Article 30 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation is precisely about this.

          An attempted crime is the deliberate actions (inaction) of a person directly aimed at committing a crime, if the crime was not completed due to circumstances beyond the control of this person.

        I assessed QUALITATIVELY, by and large, the situation, showing the order of magnitude.
        In fact, there are 1,8 times more in the states than in Russia.
        In Zap. Europe is sitting 3-5 times less than in Russia.
        The number of premeditated murders in the United States is still 1,5 times less than in Russia.
        All these are generally accepted statistics.

    Divide the established tradition according to nationality and social sectors (secular, religious, Arabs). They use it quite correctly and such division is not always allowed. Usually, the division is given by sector if the murder takes place within the sector, for example, Arabs kill Arabs (there is a high level of violence and this is now widely discussed in society). We have 100-150 premeditated murders per year. There was a year when no murders were registered in the millionth Jerusalem. It is known that 90% of drugs from the Arab sector, 100% of the murder of women (honor killings) in the Arab sector, the Jewish sector - economic crimes and rape.

      Ethnic crime is common in many countries. We have Caucasian and Central Asian groups, in the United States in the "African-Negro" neighborhoods, the murder rate is also probably higher. Italian "families" have settled there a long time ago. In France, there are Algerians, and there are also Chechens. There are a lot of examples in different countries. Much of the crime is the work of migrants. So many nuances in different countries. If we try to count with this approach, nothing will work.
      And so the statistics are more or less fair. The business of the state is to ensure security, and not to tell that it is not us, but these ones. And we are actually white and fluffy.

    Since when have Jews abroad become "our community"? They are just Jews who are citizens of their countries. Your logic is not clear to me. In the statistics I mentioned, it was about the Jewish sector of Israel.
    If 10% of the Ukrainian Armed Forces are ethnic Russians, then you should not conclude that they are automatically the Russian community of Russia. Why do we need these childish, stupid distortions?

      Alexzn, and are you not one whole? smile And this logic is incomprehensible to me. How could citizens of other countries, albeit Jews, claim and seize foreign lands?

      Again I remembered gr. Tsivin, maybe it's in your genes to squeeze out someone else's?

      Again, Syria, Iran ... some kind of Golan Heights. You cheat, you steal, you cheat. What about the elections, again Netanyahu was elected? He's under investigation and could be jailed? And, I remembered, you have statistics!

          Alexzn, in some ways you are right, about the kindergarten. However, the facts are a stubborn thing, the nationalists of Ukraine are financed, Russophobia is also well fed, the Jews are in "chocolate". I previously posted a video about the life of oligarchs.

          Well, and you, often criticizing the Russian Federation, ignore the existence of a well-organized "United Jewish Community of Ukraine".

          One gets the impression that you are hiding the active participation of persons of Jewish nationality on the side of Bandera, against Russia. Only Zelensky is in sight.

          I visited the site of this synagogue, I wanted to read that they call themselves Ukrainians. I couldn't find it, they don't write anywhere - we are Ukrainians ... etc. This is all very sad.

    The Jews of Ukraine were divided in their attitude to the current government, like all citizens of Ukraine. There are Jews who hate Russia, there are those who hate the current regime, there are those who just make money - isn't that obvious? Anyone arguing with this? Do you think the Israelis like what is happening in Ukraine? Not everyone, or rather, the majority do not like it. We support Ukraine, but without crossing the border, which Russia will not like, in good relations with which we are much more interested.
    Kolomoisky in Israel is practically persona non grata, Zelensky does not enjoy special respect in our country, unlike Putin, who is feared but respected.
    Politics. Not everything is as primitive as you are trying to imagine.

      Alexzn, it just doesn’t mean that it’s wrong, and if I write hard, fewer people will understand me. There are more reasons not to complicate. hi
