The journalist has two juvenile daughters at large. The eldest daughter, at the age of 16, is a witness in the mother's case. Children's interrogations have already caused Mariia a nervous breakdown. On July 2, the court appointed Ponomarenko a psychiatric examination, while forbidding him to see his relatives. After passing the examination, Maria complained about the inappropriate behavior of the medical staff, who injected her with unknown drugs.
