After the interrogation, the "masked people" put black bags and handcuffs on them, put them in a truck and took away. Nenasheva and her companion were tortured and abused. According to Nenasheva, it lasted about eight hours. As a result, Nenasheva was told that all this time she was allegedly rescued from the murder by the SBU officers. Her counterpart "counterespionage of the DNR" was considered the SBU agent and possible killer, so they even mocked him more. However, the young people were taken to the border with Russia and released after this.
