So what has Tatarstan's government done? Well, they've been busily promoting a national contest where you can vote for your favorite prison guard!
In "Vivat, Officers," Russians get a chance to choose their favorite corrections officer. Tatarstan's own Vladlen Chemerisov is back among the pack in the all-Russian vote at just over 8 percent.
Only one vote per IP address or phone number per calendar day, though, so if you want to help Chemerisov make up the gap or co-favorites Andrei Kozlov or Aleksandr Sidorov break away from the crowd, you only have until June 12 to get your votes in!
