Plot Detention of the adviser to the head of Roscosmos Ivan Safronov in the case of treason
Advisor to the head of Roscosmos, former correspondent for Kommersant publications and Vedomosti Ivan Safronov received two reprimands from the administration of the Lefortovo SIZO, one of which was after a razor blade was found in his cell. TASS writes about this with reference to the executive secretary of the Public Monitoring Commission of Moscow Ivan Melnikov, who visited the accused in the isolation ward.
According to him, the second reprimand followed the first attempt to glue the antenna to the wall. If there are two or more disciplinary sanctions, the prisoner may be placed in a punishment cell. Melnikov noted that Safronov received both reprimands before he was sent to solitary confinement for three days. At the same time, the prisoner himself claims that the blade did not belong to him, but remained in the cell after the previous prisoner.
Safronov also told the observers that he and his cellmate, after returning from the punishment cell, managed to establish the operation of the television antenna within the framework of the SIZO rules.
“ According to Safronov, he spent three days in the punishment cell, read a lot, in particular, Game of Thrones, '' Melnikov said. & ndash; He also got tired of the music of Grieg and Prokofiev, because there they turn on the Orpheus radio station almost all the time, on which it was played. News from radio station “ Mayak '' they were turned on in the punishment cell for a short time in the morning and in the evening. '' The POC spokesman added that the SIZO administration promised to revise the set of broadcast radio stations.
In addition, he said that Safronov still does not receive letters and does not send his correspondence, although he received a transmission with warm clothes.
Safronov was arrested on July 7 last year. He is charged with treason. He does not admit guilt. Earlier, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that the charges against Safronov have yet to be proven in court. According to him, the Kremlin cannot comment on the situation until the verdict is passed.
Also in early November, it was reported that Safronov was charged with a new episode. According to the investigation, in December 2015, the defendant conveyed information about the activities of the RF Armed Forces in Syria to political scientist Demuri Voronin.
