"Natalia Stetsenko was born in Donetsk. She was captured by local militants on July 10, 2019. For the first three months, she was kept in "isolation", in the secret jail of the so-called Ministry of State Security of Donetsk People's Republic", and then, they took her to Donetsk remand centre No.5. She has not seen her family ever since. According to what her father heard from former hostages, Natalia endures psychological pressure, which is why she's depressed", Denisova said.
