“It’s the only thing that can stop Dreykov and his network of widows. He takes more every day. Children who don’t have anyone to protect them. just like us when we were small. Maybe one in twenty survives the training, becomes a widow, the rest, he kills. To him we are just things. Weapons with no face that he can just throw away. Because there is always more. And no one’s even looking for him, thanks to you and Alexei.” – Yelena
A class of children with no one to protect them can be abducted, trained and turned into weapons! Real life examples of this phenomenon abound across the world.
