Many people have read about the precarious security situation in Ingushetia, but relatively few have heard about the way the Ingush and Chechens are treated in the Russian prisons. Shocking evidence has emerged from a letter and a photo of an Ingush prisoner, Askhabali Natsulkhanov, that is detained in Volga region of Russia. It was published by an Ingush opposition website ingushetiyaru.org
In his letter Askhabali writes, that he has TB and an ulcer, he is not treated for any these deceases, does not have access even to clean bandage for his open wounds, but has to use stripes of cloths. He says, the prison guards laugh at him, saying, he is very sturdy.
People with unstable psyche should not look at the photo! Askhabali’s bowels literally stick out of his belly on this rare, clandestinely taken photo.
