Mariupol, Donetsk region

Military medic Maryana Mamonova from the Rivne region during the exchange of prisoners, along with other Ukrainian Heroes, recently returned from Russian captivity. Now she is already 9 months pregnant, preparing for childbirth and will soon see her parents coming to visit her. Relatives said that there were days when a pregnant woman ate only two apples for the whole day. She said that in the first weeks of pregnancy she constantly wanted to cry and eat, but there was a war around, and she, as a doctor, had to help people, including carrying the wounded.
