Emergency services rescue cat in Kyiv region

STORY: The cat was lowered down from a devastated building in the town where he was found, and was given water to drink.

The State Emergency Service described on Facebook that this was a “happy rescue” and said “in a village where you can still smell death, a small miracle happened”.

Reports and footage from Borodianka showed that the town has suffered great destruction.

The town was one of the main hotspots of fighting between Ukrainian and Russian forces. Now it's back under the Ukrainian flag as Russian forces withdrew in late March, pulling back from Ukraine's northern regions to intensify their offensive in the east.
