Location: Moscow, Russia

The largest of Moscow remand prisons is located in the Tverskoy District of the Russian capital. It is known for its ruthless regime, and the prison administration resorts to violence whenever inmates try to protest against something. At Butyrka, they are forced to survive on bland food and it has been reported that 80 inmates are fit into cells made to house 20 people. In addition to that, epidemics are a huge problem, and the wardens try to fill cells entirely with people with tuberculosis or AIDS.
