Us vs Them: Sadism and Animal Abuse in Russian Army

Russian occupiers’ cruelty knows no limits: both towards people and animals. Russian large-scale invasion unleashed needless suffering for those that cannot defend themselves from the invaders.

Countless reports of animal abuse have appeared in the once-occupied areas of Ukraine, from the Russian troops eating dogs to burning dozens of horses alive by setting fire to their stables.

On the other hand, Ukrainian defenders and volunteers have been rescuing animals from the Russian shelling and occupation, taking care of them on the frontline, and this testifies yet again to how different the Russians and Ukrainians are.
