RUSSIA'S ALCATRAZ - The toughest prison on Fire Island | Full Documentary

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
Behind bars in Russia is no fun - in our Documentary about Russia's toughest prison we show why! Terrorists, gunmen and mafia bosses are serving their life sentences in the Russian penal camp "Vologodski Pjatak". The fortress on the island of Ognenny was built as a monastery in the 16th century. Later the "Fire Island" was converted into a gulag for enemies of the state after the October Revolution of 1917. Since 1994 it is a maximum security prison for serious criminals. Christoph Wanner is the first western TV reporter to manage to shoot behind the prison walls on the island of the damned.

I'm just glad the guy told me "the island is surrounded by water". I had no idea. Now I can sleep tonight.

Inhumane conditions... For inhumane criminals... I guess that's fair.

Listen if you're considered dangerous in Russia that must be saying something.



The prisoner wants firing squad. That's proper Russian.

Narrator - In Russia, life in prison means “until the day you die”

The rest of us - Yeah makes sense!

I love how they give them hope of maybe getting out on parole after 25 years, while no one has ever gotten out on parole.

How clean and neat all the medical rooms and bathrooms are. Not a broken tile or spot of rust or graffiti in sight.

Russians know how to run prisons. Notice how much respect the prisoners have for the guards? You just know them guards don’t take any shit.

It’s all “inhumane” until you find out what they are in for.
