15 Photos of Ukrainians and Their Pets Caught up in The War Showing the How Strong the Human-Pet Love Bond Can Be
Ukraine and its population continue to be ravaged by the terrible events that have taken place ever since Russian President Vladimir Putin decided to invade the country. The invasion of Ukraine and the ensuing attacks on the country have displaced most citizens, causing them to flee their homes. But one thing to learn from these people is that- no matter what, they don’t leave a family member behind, and of course, that even includes their non-human family members as well. Take a look at some of these heartfelt photos from the shelters and places occupied by fleeing Ukrainian people along with their pets amidst the chaotic war.
15 While nobody wanted a war, it was still expected to break out sooner or later
Country leaders have a mind of their own and have been known to get involved in similar situations, putting their personal interests ahead of the health and safety of the general public. Nobody wanted to believe that such a terrible thing would happen, despite the fact that most people expected it.
14 The onset of the war has threatened all life in Ukraine
People believe that in this modern world, agreements should be made without putting people’s lives in danger. However, once again, everyone was proven wrong, with Russia declaring their ‘Special Operations in the Pro-Russian break-away regions of Ukraine.’ In a sense, it appears that nothing has changed, and this may very well just be a pretext to invade the entire country.
13 The Ukrainian people being struck by this unfortunate tragedy remain strong in their bonds with their entire family, including their pets
Rather than having a happy and colourful life, innocent youngsters are forced to deal with something so heinous in the modern world. Lives don’t seem to matter when it comes to satisfying personal interests, but for the Ukrainian people, every life is precious, which is why they chose not to abandon their pets.
12 Ukrainians flee with their pets in tow
Many Ukrainians have been seen fleeing with their beloved dogs in tow during these tense and tragic times. Everyone in the country is taking refuge in subway stations, which are now serving as makeshift shelters, and making their way to the border to save their loved ones and beloved pets from the escalating conflict.
11 Due to restrictions that make crossing the border into other countries, some have chosen to stay back with their pets
Even still, many residents of the impacted areas can’t afford to leave because of the typical restrictions that need a lot of paperwork and vaccines for individuals to cross borders with their pets. So, they’re staying to be with their beloved animals.
