She organized the regular collection and delivery of humanitarian aid to the village by private transport for orphans and half-orphans from the Novoazovskyi orphanage, which Ukraine did not have time to evacuate. Volunteers, united by Lyudmyla Huseynova, created a library of Ukrainian literature in the orphanage, purchased a computer, and each child received postcards from Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv and Odesa. "On October 16, 2019, representatives of the occupation administration came to her place of work, ordered her to pack up quickly, and then took her home, conducted a "search", confiscated all the equipment and means of communication – phones, a laptop and flash drives. The relatives learned about everything from the words of the director of the poultry farm. They did not know where Lyudmyla for two months at all", - Denisova told.

She is not receiving any medical attention. She feeds on what the sister transmits. Denisova addressed the leadership of the International Red Cross in Ukraine with an appeal to urgently visit Lyudmila Huseynova and facilitate her immediate release.
