Microsurgeon George Nazaryan added that during the torture, Margarita remained conscious.
In an interview with Moskovsky Komsomol, Sukhinin said that Margarita’s left hand brush would not be able to fully recover - but the doctors did everything possible to make it functional.

"Wait with a robot hand"
In mid-December, the collection of money for the rehabilitation and prosthetics of Margarita began (later the call to help the woman was supported by the show of Andrei Malakhov, in which Gracheva took part). By January 13, the Margarita family managed to collect six million rubles, which they decided to spend on a flight to Germany, living there for a month and making a prosthetic right hand. As her mother, Inna Sheykina, later reported, another million rubles was to be transferred by a sponsor, who was found on a talk show by Andrei Malakhov; the family also promised to help Gazprom.
As Gracheva explained on her page in VKontakte, functional prosthetic hands are worth from three and a half million rubles. She also wrote that the rehabilitation of the left hand will begin later, and the hand will be able to do something no sooner than in a year and a half.
While she was preparing for the trip to Germany, Margarita published her photos in social networks and thanked everyone who helped and sympathized with her. For example, she signed one of her photos:
"Smile, do not give trouble trouble." “Because I’m going to cry, my hands will not grow,” she explained. “I am tuned to health.”

This is not the same thing. And what will happen next when it comes out? ”
