Fleeing from Russian aggression, Ukrainians do not forget about their little friends. So, in the city of Irpen photographer Markus Yam captured a touching event – a man trying to convince a dog paralyzed by fear of shelling to move on.
The photo was posted on Facebook by Svitlana Medvedieva.
In the picture, a man named Andrey Kulik does not abandon his pet, but tries to comfort the animal and urge him to save himself and move on.
The frightened dog refused to leave, and the owner patiently tried to calm his pet.
