Prison at Guantanamo better than prison in Russia?

I can't be sure about that. But I know it's definitely warmer...

RFE/RL: Human Rights Watch has alleged former Russian Guantanamo Bay inmates were beaten and abused after the United States handed them over to Russia in 2004. HRW said their findings show how the dangers of the U.S. policy of handing over former detainees under "diplomatic assurances" to their native countries, where they may risk further abuse. U.S. forces detained the seven Russians in Afghanistan in 2002 and they spent the next two years in the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In its 43-page report, HRW interviewed three of the former inmates and talked to lawyers and families of all seven men.
