«According to statistics, the number of domestic violence facts increased by 65 percent compared to the same period in 2019. There is a variety of reasons, most often trifling: why are you sitting with such a face, too much salt in a soup... A man goes from insults and accusations to physical assault,» Azamat Attokurov said.
