According to the parents, living in the occupation became too difficult. In the absence of Russian passports, they had no right to consult doctors and get a job.

Also, according to Prokudin, the occupiers constantly ransacked the family’s apartment, scaring the children.

Currently, all families are safe, doctors and psychologists are working with them.
