Ukrainian Troops Rescued Cat Stranded For Months While Retaking Snake Island

Ukrainian Troops Rescued Cat Stranded For Months While Retaking Snake Island. Ukrainian troops who retook the strategically and symbolically important outcrop of Snake Island made an astonishing rescue a cat that had been abandoned and living on the island in the months since Russia occupied it in the early days of their invasion. The Ukrainian border force said they had “evacuated” the feisty feline, who they discovered during demining operations. Previously, the garrison at Snake Island became national heroes by defying the crew of the Russian warship Moskva before they took the island - a key strategic asset 40km off Ukraine's south western coast. The vessel, the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet, was subsequently sunk by Ukrainian forces. Ukraine retook the island on 30 June after Russian forces abandoned their positions and have replaced the Russian flag with their own.
