Although she denies meeting Salis or Dimoupolou, Ruseva cannot remember many details about the woman to whom she passed off Maria.
"I have no clue what her name was. I did not ask and she did not say. That woman said leave your girl here and I'll take care of like I was her mother. I trusted her," Ruseva said.
"The woman looked good. Her skin was not too pale, a bit like us. She was blond. With dyed blond hair," she said.
Despite the gaps in her story, Ruseva says she clearly remembers the moment she said goodbye to Maria.
"I kissed her. I was crying. I was worried. My heart was breaking," she said.
