Burenkova passed the night here and is not going to return back home, without husband's wage. Her husband was not able to come because of state of health (he is an industrial invalid).

According to Yury Podatko, the non-formal leader of pickets, they were told that the demands would not be satisfied. In such case the Ministry will be snowed under the analogous demands.
