Two tones of paint were used in the construction of the plateau, which was set up to give the prison theme cooler. For the outer walls of the courtyard, 2 thousand meters of barbed wire was used in indoor and outdoor areas. For the construction of the walls, 200 square meters of ytong walls were built.
