It means she could not leave earlier. Each, probably, has its own term, its own limit of patience. I could not. Mistake. I wish all women who find themselves in a similar situation not to wait so long and try to leave earlier. Because nothing will change. It will only get worse - commented on her long silence Onopka.

Talking about violence and threats to the media is a necessary measure to protect yourself and other women from such tragic situations:

I tried to solve everything peacefully at first. It didn't work out, he began to threaten. I had no choice but to go to the press and act, because I am a girl and I do what I can.

There are a lot of them and they were recently. Psychiatric hospitals, prison, and parents were touched. Mom mostly. In fact, everything is very serious.

Most importantly, now Snejana Onopka does not lose hope and is ready to fight for her dignity:

If I regret something deeply, I will go crazy. Therefore, I took the following position: everything that I have experienced means that this should have happened. And it will only get better. New plans, new battles, new up and down, etc. I do not dwell on the past, I go forward, I know my goals and I want to achieve them.
