Barovskaya, who was at work, said that when her daughter called, “I could hear the doorbell ringing non-stop. She was hysterical … It was very scary.” The men at Barovskaya’s apartment door were police officers who came to talk about her involvement in peaceful protests following the contentious presidential elections. While she was on the phone with her daughter, police arrived at her office and took her to the police station. For five hours, they questioned Barovskaya about her posts on social media and threatened that her “support for the power-grabbers” would ruin her daughter’s budding sports career. When they let her leave, she frantically called her daughter and found out the girl did not open the door and the police eventually left.
