Siberian Prison Inmates Craft Fatherland Day Ice Sculptures

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

This week, something a bit more belligerent - for Russia's Fatherland Day, inmates crafted amazingly realistic tanks and other weaponry. An intercontinental ballistic missile launcher sporting camouflage took first place. Added bonus, the prison psychologist says the competition encourages law-abiding behavior. It's MORNING EDITION.
