Ilya Yashin, a politician who has been held in Correctional Colony No. 3 in the Smolensk region since December 2022, continues to share his prison observations. Yashin was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison for spreading "fake news" about the Russian army after streaming about the killing of civilians in Bucha. Despite the threat, Yashin did not leave Russia at the onset of the full-scale war. In his latest post on May 31, Yashin detailed the stories of three inmates from his colony who went to war and never returned.
