Oksana Krasnova, 27 y.o., worked as a lawyer in Kyiv before the start of the war in Ukraine. Within 6 months, she and her partner Stanislav Krasnov, 35 y.o., joined the armed forces as snipers. They were stationed on the front lines in Donetsk Oblast.
The couple has always been touched by the animal business. So much so that since the start of their mission, they have rescued over 30 dogs and cats they found while crossing abandoned villages.
“I love animals very much and saved some with my husband even before the Russian invasion. I come across many abandoned dogs and cats when I do my homework and I can’t leave them there. It is difficult to evacuate them from the front line, but these unfortunates are used to living with people, so they cannot survive alone, ”explained a young woman from the war zone.
Therefore, Oksana and Stanislav collect animals in their camp. In their free time, they provide them with care and give them all their love.
The couple pays for medicines and all food out of their own pocket.
The survivors are then loaded into military vehicles, which leave for Kyiv and, upon arrival, are handed over to local associations. They take care to find their owners or find them a new home, as the case may be.
Oscan also spoke about their first and most memorable rescue. The couple heard a low bark. Approaching, they found a small dog locked in the apartment. For a month she resisted by eating raw potatoes.
“She was on the ground. We had to stuff it into a box and carry it in our military vehicle. She had convulsions and we didn’t think she would survive,» Oksana said.
But thanks to their care, the young lady recovered, and today she was adopted by a loving family.
