The new punitive measure was expected to be put into place in 2013. It is seen as an alternative to jail sentences for minor crimes and serious crimes committed for the first time. The time period of forced labour may be set for a period from 2 months to 5 years.

      One of the reasons for the delay is lack of staff and funding needed to supervise the new measure. The construction of one labour centre costs a total of 70 million roubles, or $2.3 million.

      The initial bill introducing the new form of punishment was passed by the parliament under the previous president, with hopes to decrease the inmate population in Russia.
