"Canada gave me the Light of Justice Award when I was in prison. It was $12,000. The income tax was paid, and I received 9,600 on my bank card, but this amount was in dollars. It was my sister who received the money, since I was in captivity in Russia," she said.
The Light of Justice Award has been being granted by the Ukrainian Catholic University in Canada since 2010 as recognition for moral, spiritual, and ethical leadership. The award was established by a Canadian of Ukrainian background Ms. Anastasia Shkilnyk.
