Story 7: Natalia

82-year-old Natalia lost her house in the besieged Mariupol. She hid in bomb shelters for a while, but eventually Russian troops found her and took her to a filtration camp.  They took away her passport and proposed to either stay there and be shot or be deported to Russia. Natalia chose the last.

Together with other elderly people, she was deported to Astrachan, Russia. Russians forced these people to take Russian passports. Natalia refused to accept the passport. The woman stays in a nursing home without any documents and cannot come back.
