We managed to talk to her mother Marina. "At the time of the attack, we were at home, sleeping. Everything happened so fast that a second is a very long time for this. My daughter heard a milliwhistle, it was a fraction of a second," the woman says.
"She has a bunk bed, she got off it and at that moment our window was broken. My daughter has an open laceration, the doctors gave her first aid, took us to the hospital and stitched her up. In principle, her condition is satisfactory, but psychologically she is trembling. She is now in a safe place with my close relatives, but she is very traumatized psychologically," said the mother of the injured girl.
