A Ukrainian woman was killed trying to save dogs that were abandoned during the war.
Anastasiia Yalanskaya was delivering dog food to a shelter outside Kyiv, when she was shot and killed by Russian troops. Her family believes the shooting was intentional … that Anastasiia was targeted by members of the Russian military.
Two other volunteers were also killed.
The town where this happened — Bucha — has been the site of unrelenting aggression by the Russian army … with daily bombings.
She posted a photo of her in a car next to bags of dog food she intended to deliver … the Insta post went up just hours before Anastasiia was shot and killed.
The attack occurred while she was still in her car … having just delivered the food. The car was bullet-ridden.
Anastasiia’s husband said, “She was one of the best human beings I knew. She was committed to help, to help her friends and relatives and whoever needed help.”
He added, “She loved animals. We had a dog and a cat. She was the best partner I ever had.”
