Four-legged friends are also fighting with the Ukrainian military on the battlefield. Soldiers get "dugout" pets by picking them up from the street. For the defenders, the dogs are real brothers, as they are trained to rescue civilians and even find mines.
In the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the furry animals are given trendy call signs - Bayraktar or Javelina. OBOZREVATEL tells about the animals that became war heroes.
- Bairaktar the lemur
A lemur was born in Kyiv Zoo on the seventh day of the war. He was named Bayraktar in honor of Turkish strike drones that help Ukrainians destroy enemy equipment. In addition to the lemur, three goats were born in the zoo.
- Dog Patron
Since the beginning of the war, the dog Patron, together with sappers, has defused almost 90 explosive devices. This was reported on the main page of the State Emergency Service. He has his own bulletproof vest with a Ukrainian flag and call sign. Puffy is two years old. Colleagues from Chernihiv write that he is the soul and mascot of the bomb squad. The dog accompanies the sappers on every mission, and the defenders, in turn, pamper him with goodies.
- Mykola the cat
Ukrainian cat Mykola lives next to the military, sleeping with grenades and equipment. Foreign correspondent Ryan Long interviewed him. The journalist assures that the cat does not understand the snotty Russian cats and cats that are no longer allowed to attend exhibitions and competitions in the West. "I'm just defending my homeland," Nikolai the cat purred to the reporter.
- Bayraktar puppy
The police dog training center in Kyiv region has a puppy that can predict enemy attacks. The German shepherd was born at the dog training center a few months before the war started. The puppy has become a mascot for law enforcement. The fluffy little guy senses the approach of the enemy and raises a ruckus a few minutes before the explosions. The puppy doesn't stop until the battle is over, supporting the military in confronting the aggressor. Bayraktar also rejoices when the defenders win the battle near the city of Irpin.
- A four-legged brother
The dog is fighting alongside the military, defending Ukraine. When journalists came up with cameras to interview him about missiles, the dog wanted to be a TV star too. The soldiers of the 72nd separate mechanized brigade named after the Black C ossacks emphasize that the dog is their true friend.
- Bayraktar the dog
The National Guard got a dog that came to them on the first day of the war. The soldiers accepted him into the team and named him Bayraktar, as he is their main weapon. The military say that the furry dog is the first to point out possible danger and serves around the clock.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL showed photos of the military with cats. The National Guard called the felines "little combat brothers".
