The sad news reached us from the village of Kupovate.
Sonia died – the sister of the most famous and smiling woman in this town, Baba Hania.
Sonia was disabled and was looked after by her sister – they returned to the zone soon after the disaster telling the military they can either let them stay or they can shoot them.
