Russian government has recently introduced a new development for correction system. One of the points in this system is a new probation scheme which should help ex-prisoners to adapt in society.
Post-prison adaptation is problematic in Russia. Ex-prisoners experience difficulties with employment and it is nearly impossible for them to get back to normal life.
Why do we need to worry about it? Since it is hard for ex-prisoners to socialise, sometimes they come back to criminal activity which can be a threat to out society.
