Structure of the Federal service of execution of punishments (FSIN) needs serious changes, but exercise is difficult, said the Chairman of the Public Council under the Ministry of internal Affairs of Russia, member of public chamber, lawyer Anatoly Kucherena.

«Yes, of course, change is necessary… It is necessary to break, of course, there are now ONC, now everything becomes public. But, nevertheless, it is still somewhere there is a spot of some kind that festers and then it all shoots», — said Kucherena on air of TV channel «Russia 24», answering the question whether the structure of the FSIN serious changes.

The lawyer said that the current leadership of the Federal penitentiary service is doing everything possible to «break» tradition, but to make it easy. «We need these not to be afraid of us to build, in particular, and private prisons,» — said Kucherena.
