Otroshchenkov has sewn his first mittens in prison

Aleksandr Otroshchenkov, the press secretary of presidential candidate Andrei Sannikov, is serving his sentence (4 years of intensive regime) in the prison-colony "Vitba-3".

“Sasha was assigned to the area where they sew mittens and gloves. At the moment he is not very happy with his work achievements,” said Darya Korsak, the wife of the political prisoner, in an interview with “Radio Liberty”.

“He writes that he is not very successful and that it is unlikely he will be a useful worker in this section. Even after he sewed these gloves, he wanted to go to church and ask forgiveness of those who would wear them,” Korsak said.
