Bobruisk’s juvenile prison colony to reorganize into an educational centre

Bobruisk’s juvenile prison colony, the only one in Belarus, is to be reorganized into an educational centre.

The idea was adopted from Russia’s experience where it has been practiced for a decade. In Alexander Kralko’s words, the educational centre should become a strong stimulus for teenagers to behave properly.

The centre will have less strict rules: no uniform, more frequent opportunities to see relatives, kitchen premises to cook food, room accommodation (maximum 4 people in one room) and available leisure time, less control from the side of administration.

Today 260 youngsters live in the juvenile prison colony in Bobruisk. The youngest of them is 15 years old. The eldest one is a bit over 20. According to the UNICEF statistics over 2014, Belarus is number two in the rating of Central, Eastern European countries and the CIS by the number of teenagers living in penalty establishments.
