Small note: Oblast refers better to province with region being termed as krai. Neferkheperre (talk) 01:06, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Neutrality & Possible Propaganda[edit]

The fact that there are "no complaints" from a prison National Geographic calls "one of Russia's toughest" seems quite suspiscious to me. Bent over in shackles, blindfolded, denied any contact to the outside world (save a radio) — someone tell me how this is not some sugarcoated apolagetics for blatant human rights abuses at this place. As a matter of fact, I'll do more research into the prison right now and make some edits and additions on human rights violations to help lessen this probable NPOV violation, lack of balanced treatment of the topic and possible subversion of Wikipedia's policy against paid editing (if some of the edits stem from one or more Russia's intelligence agencies, that would be completely unacceptable for obvious reasons). That said, I'm fully committed to working with other Wikipedians on this and I do not want this to turn into a one person crusade or rant. Jamutaq (talk) 18:21, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

No one with a brain is going to complain when no one on the outside can hear him scream afterwards. Hence it is very likely no one makes any complaints. Who would they ultimately appeal to? Putin? LOL.... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.49.209.14 (talk) 22:16, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

Confused about the reference 4.[edit]

Isn't the NPR article talking about a different prison? The article talks about Vladimir Central and Kopeisk prison, but says nothing about Black Dolphin. Also, several other things are wrong. This Wikipedia article says that Gladkov said he was taken from the showers and beaten unconscious. However, it was a different former prisoner saying this in the NPR article, and there were several details wrong about it. Kopeshk (talk) 01:09, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
