Labor Camp for Girls, Ligovo Village, Ryazan region, east of Moscow. This is one of two such prisons for girls in Russia. A girl must be convicted of a felony twice to merit incarceration here. Nearly half the girls are serving sentences for aiding their boyfriends in raping another girl. (This proves their devotion to the boy.) Most of the others were convicted of theft, and a few of murder. The sentence for these fourteen- to eighteen-year-old girls is usually two to four years, and only the most severe cases are later transferred to a women's prison. December 1992.
