‘Goat of Kyiv’ leaves 40 Russian soldiers injured after setting off a trap | World | New

Occupation troops were setting up a tripwire when the farm animal set off a chain explosion of several grenades, Ukraine’s General Intelligence Directorate said.

“Following the ‘chaotic’ movements of the goat, the animal ‘threw’ several grenades. [Russians] suffered more or less serious injuries. »

The goat’s fate remained unknown yesterday, but the escaped animal is referred to as the Kyiv goat on Ukrainian social media.

The reference commemorates the legend of a mythical pilot known as the Ghost of Kyiv, credited with shooting down numerous Russian planes during the Kremlin’s failed assault on the Ukrainian capital.

After taking the defending cities of Kherson and Mariupol, Vladimir Putin’s invading forces intensified their attacks on Zaporizhzhia. At least 60% of the region around the city in southeastern Ukraine has fallen to Russia.

Putin’s troops have attacked the region since invading Ukraine on February 24. Control of the region would allow his army to advance on the central areas of the war-torn country.

This is not the first time an animal has made headlines for helping the Ukrainian resistance.

A Jack Russell terrier was honored last month for spotting more than 200 explosive devices since the conflict began.

Two-year-old Boss – Bullet in English – works in the Chernihiv region, north of Kyiv, to help his military handlers detect mines and other live munitions.

Patron paved the way for Ukrainians to return home without risking further injury or death. Hundreds of these aircraft are believed to have been abandoned by retreating Russian forces.
