Prison to Install Sunbeds for Inmates

The Butyrka prison in central Moscow, one of Russia’s most notorious prisons, plans to install sunbeds to improve the health of its inmates. The sunbeds will be installed by the end of the year.

Earlier this year, the prison service admitted that almost half of Russia's inmates are ill, many infected with HIV or with tuberculosis. It blamed outdated medical equipment for disease and health problems.

Reuters reports:

“... [I]nmates will also have access to ultrasound systems to ‘check up on their health,’ and could even have spa facilities such as mud baths in the future.”
