Animals Affected by War
With the war, pets find themselves abandoned, dead or taken in by associations. Some stories end well, like that of the cat Stepan from the city of Kharkiv in Ukraine, who became a star on the Instagram social network and who now lives in France, brought back by Monegasques.
In Odessa, abandoned cats are collected in an Orthodox monastery, where volunteers look for a new master for them. According to an NGO, at least 900,000 pets have been left behind by their owners in Ukraine.
