“When I started working I was naive, and my aim was to have families reunited.”

Elena Zolotilova and Tatiana Pavlova

“I pray to Allah that no girl ever needs to be born in Pakistan.”
“My father said: If you’ve kidnapped the children I’ll help your husband to get them back.”
“What we see is a state which does not take responsibility for its people.”  
“When the girls begin to think about the future, about what they will do when they leave here, then we can stop worrying.”
