[b]An "animal-loving" Ukrainian sniper and her husband fighting on the frontline
have rescued dozens of pets after discovering them abandoned on the battlefield.

Oskana Krasnova, 27, uses her wages to pay for food and supplies to nurse the animals back to health before arranging for them to be transported on military vehicles to the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, to be rehomed.

Ms Krasnova had previously worked as a lawyer in the capital until Russia invaded the country six months ago and she joined the Ukrainian frontline defence, fighting in the Donetsk region.

In between working as snipers, Ms Krasnova and her husband Stanislav Krasnov, 35, have rescued almost 30 pets they have discovered when passing through abandoned villages...

Natalia Popova, 50, pets a lion at her animal shelter in Kyiv region, Ukraine, Thursday, Aug. 4, 2022. Popova, in cooperation with the animal protection organisation UA Animals, has already saved more than 300 animals from the war, 200 of them were sent abroad, and 100 found a home in most western regions of Ukraine, which are considered to be safer.

CHUBYNSKE, Ukraine -- Natalia Popova has found a new purpose in life: Rescuing wild animals and pets from the devastation wrought by the war in Ukraine.

“They are my life,” says the 50-year-old, stroking a light-furred lioness like a kitten. From inside an enclosure, the animal rejoices at the attention, lying on her back and stretching her paws up toward her caretaker.

Popova, in cooperation with the animal protection group UA Animals, has already saved more than 300 animals from the war; 200 of them went abroad and 100 found new homes in western Ukraine, which is considered safer. Many of them were wild animals who were kept as pets at private homes before their owners fled Russian shelling and missiles.

Popova’s shelter in the Kyiv region village of Chubynske now houses 133 animals. It's a broad menagerie, including 13 lions, a leopard, a tiger, three deer, wolves, foxes, raccoons and roe deer, as well as domesticated animals like horses, donkeys, goats, rabbits, dogs, cats and birds...

Rebecca, who herself has three dogs, two pygmy goats and a cat, said she got the urge to help after seeing pictures of animals in Ukraine and thinking ‘they aren’t being noticed’

A British mum who spends her free time packing busloads of animal supplies bound for Ukraine says the donations are saving abandoned pets from a “scared and hungry death”.

Since the war in Ukraine began in March, Rebecca Renmant-Oliver, a mum and Finance Assistant from Rusper, has packed "four or five" minibuses to the brim with donated animal supplies.

The 56-year-old mum-of-one, who has a family and a job, collects everything from dog food to veterinary examination tables, to be distributed mainly in the Donbas region to help the thousands of animals displaced by the war.
