Not really, it's because so-called zashkvar since you gonna share the common mug of chefir with other respectable inmates and transmit "zashkvar" to their lips or using other objects of common use. So yes, you admit it and become a rooster.
There are worse roles in the cells. One of the worst might be "gasonyuh", who takes the farts into his mouth and then runs to the window to blow them out so not to contaminate the cell lol.
And swearing isn't allowed either because for every word you say you must take responsibility and provide proofs. So, if you call someone "petuh" and he is not, it's you who will drop in the hierarchy forever, even if transferred to another location.
When arrived at a new location, please announce your rank immediately, so the other won't get "zashkvar" handshaking you.
Lastly, If you are a rooster and very abused/mistreated the final solution for you is to kiss the cell leader. You will be dead but he'll be sort of a dead too.
But don't worry, foreign nationals are treated kindly like guests.
