North Koreans and prisoners can be recruited to work on Russian construction sites. The government is already working on this, Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin told reporters. The head of the Public Council under the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, Yevgeny Grishkovets, in a conversation with Gazeta.Ru, supported the initiative to provide work to convicts.
Twice as productive
Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin said at a conference in Skolkovo that the government is considering the possibility of recruiting prisoners convicted under light economic articles to work at construction sites. He noted that earlier prisoners were reluctant to agree to corrective labor, as this deprived them of the possibility of parole. But now the Ministry of Justice, at the initiative of the government, has introduced a legislative amendment that corrects this.

“Today, under the law, even if you are in correctional labor and behave normally, you can get the opportunity for parole. I believe that this measure will lead to the fact that some of the prisoners under light economic articles could work at a construction site, ”Khusnullin said.
The government is also considering the option of attracting workers from North Korea to the construction industry. According to Khusnullin, we are talking about 20-50 thousand workers.
“We really keep records and analyze all labor personnel and we see that so far we do not have enough resources. And we are looking at different options for attracting personnel, including North Korea, ”the Deputy Prime Minister explained the government’s position.
According to his data, the labor productivity of a North Korean worker is more than twice that of a Russian worker. And they cost about the same.
“In this situation, especially for the development of the Far East, North Korea is a good option. And now we are working on this topic politically. We must understand that we will not attract them en masse (workers from North Korea – Gazeta.Ru), if we attract 20-50 thousand, it’s already good, ”Khusnullin clarified, noting that“ this is not a lot ”on the scale of workers There are 5 million builders in the industry.
The head of the Public Council under the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, Yevgeny Grishkovets , told Gazeta.Ru that if prisoners receive more money at construction sites than at work in colonies, this will become a good motivation for them.

“This topic needs a lot of clarification. It is important how the life and life of convicts outside the colonies at construction sites will be carried out and organized <…> And how control will be exercised over them, their personal freedoms, communication with them. For many convicts, if it is life and work not in a colony, but in a different regime, it will be preferable <…> they already work in colonies <…> It is known that the remuneration of convicts is rather modest. If they get more money at construction sites and are motivated for this, it will be good for many, ”said Grishkovets.
In his opinion, for many convicts, work at construction sites will be “a relief to the situation.”
“There are a number of articles: economic crimes, the same article 228 (according to which they are convicted for possession and distribution of drugs – Gazeta.Ru) – these are people who are able to live a more open social life, it seems to me. It seems to me that for many convicts, the opportunity to work at construction sites would be preferable,” he stressed.
At the same time, it is necessary to figure out what and where will be built, in what conditions – houses or industrial facilities, in the far north or in hard-to-reach regions, the head of the council continued.
“In general, it seems to me that this idea is working and expedient,” Grishkovets concluded.
“The pace needs to be increased”
Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin also told reporters about the need to increase the pace of restoration of Mariupol.

“We are moving at a good pace in Mariupol, we have developed a master plan. We have already mobilized about 10,000 builders. Of course, the pace still needs to be increased, because while we examined the houses, demining took place, a lot of time passed, ”he explained.
According to his data, Mariupol’s readiness for winter is about 80%.
“This is a good indicator, given the destruction that exists. Each boiler house, each well, each power line, we set the maximum task to prepare the city for winter,” the Deputy Prime Minister believes.
He clarified that as the city is ready for winter, the residents will also be resettled.
In addition, Khusnullin said that it is necessary to reduce the accident rate and losses in the housing and communal services sector of Russia.
“We have 952,000 kilometers of running networks, 397,000 of which need to be replaced. We need to organize the work the way we repair roads, and we must repair networks. On average, we have 80,000 accidents over the winter period, and the key task is to have much fewer such accidents,” he said.
According to the Deputy Prime Minister, the modernization of networks can help maintain tariffs for the population, and the savings in heat loss will have a positive effect on residents, since tariffs will not increase on the volume of losses.
