Mothers have to raise their children on their own on crumbs from the budget, which Lukashenko called maternity leave. In addition, they have to carry the entire household, write letters to their husbands in prison and collect parcels, while all around them there is pressure from all sides: the security forces, rising prices, the threat of detention and the crisis.
Under such extreme conditions, a very sensitive and tender period in the life of children takes place: Daddy is in prison, and Mommy is there to take care of Daddy and Mommy in the most difficult circumstances.
