Vladimir Putin is reportedly planning to establish a remote detention facility in remote Siberia, raising concerns about potential human rights abuses involving physical harm and degrading treatment of critics.

The prison, IK-17, is located outside the major city of Krasnoyarsk in Central Siberia, an area about 2,500 miles from Moscow. The winter temperatures in Krasnoyarsk can drop below -58F, the Daily Star reported.

Footage has emerged showing prison guards beating prisoners and dragging them into corridors for disciplinary measures. Allegations have also surfaced about the presence of torture chambers, commonly known as "press rooms," where inmates are pressured to provide confessions, according to the publication.

Some prisoners are reportedly tortured in front of the governor, Colonel Yuri Cheremnykh, who is often referred to as a “sadist” by former inmates, the report claims.

Inmates who are favored by the staff are often encouraged to beat up fellow inmates, and those who refuse to cooperate sometimes face brutal retribution, with fellow prisoners carrying out orders to inflict harm such as crushing their hands or having their heads forced into dirty toilets, the Daily Star reported.

Human rights organizations expressed serious concern about the facility, with some asserting that it lacks basic amenities such as showers, permitting inmates only one weekly visit to a bathhouse. Medical care is limited to nurses, as there are no doctors available, and solitary confinement is a regular punishment.

According to the Daily Star, the prison was built to house inmates dubbed “terrorists,” which is actually anyone caught campaigning against Putin.
