According to Zurab Todua, her lawyer Yulia Suslyak is from a big family and the couple wanted to continue a tradition.
As the lawyer says, when she could not give birth herself due to a health condition, she found surrogate mothers.
The lawyer says that Suslyak"s husband had a business in Ukraine till he faced problems, caused by the government. As Suslyak"s husband was persecuted, he asked for the Russian government to give him shelter, but received a refusal.

As the lawyer says, the detained woman explains that she did not go directly from Moscow to Abkhazia just because she did not want to violate the law of Georgia on the occupation.
