80-year-old Antonina, who could not evacuate due to health problems, was returned from a temporarily occupied village in Donetsk region.
The woman’s way home passed through five countries, reported Ombudsman Dmytro Lubinets.
Antonina’s daughter appealed to the Office of the Ombudsman for help in returning her mother.
She said that her mother could not move on her own, so she could not evacuate. There were no relatives or friends who would take care of her.

Antonina refused to receive a Russian passport, as a result of which she was left without a “pension”, her daughter noted.
The elderly woman was taken out by volunteers who specially bought her a cart and a walker for this purpose. Antonina left her native home in the occupied village on January 24.
“The woman’s route ran through the temporarily occupied territory of the Donetsk region and the territories of Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland“Dmytro Lubinets said.
He added that Antonina met her daughter in Lviv on February 4. They are currently in Kyiv.
We previously reported that the kidnapped girl, who was “adopted” by a Russian politician, has a brother, but his whereabouts are unknown.
