The prisoner was transferred to the penal colony No. 2 in Angarsk, since he repeatedly and intentionally violated the order at the penitentiary institution, Olga Khindanova reported.

According to the head for the press service of the FSIN's Chief Department for the Irkutsk Region, "the law provides that a prisoner can be kept there for up to one year."
