Thanks to everyone here for helping me to get through the insanity.
I just checked in after being away for several hours and three people had given me hearts! Thank you to whoever you are.

Sachs has now emerged as a prominent Covid conspiracy theorist. He is big on pushing both Chinese and Russian propaganda and talking points, including blaming the US for Russia's war on Ukraine.

As reported, Maryana Mamonova is a Ukrainian medic, captain of the medical service of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. She was born in Rivne region, graduated from the Ternopil Medical University, has master's degree from the Ukrainian Military Medical Academy.
She had four rotations to the ATO/JFO. Mamonova served as the head of the medical service of the 501st Marines Battalion. Since the beginning of Russias full-scale invasion, she served in Mariupol. Before the capture, Maryana told her family that she was pregnant. From April 4, 2022, she was held captive by the Russian invaders. On September 21, she was released within the exchange along with other Ukrainian defenders.
She was one of the 215 released in the recent prisoner swap. It looks like they got her out just in time.
