Ukrainian volunteers gunned down after delivering food to dog shelter
The Metro says Three Ukrainian volunteers were gunned down by Russian troops after they delivered dog food to starving animals at a shelter near Kyiv.
Anastasiia Yalanskaya, 26, together with Serhiy Ustymenko, 25 and Maxym Kuzmenko, 28, made the perilous journey to Bucha – 18 miles from Ukraine’s capital.
It is also close to the town of Irpin, where people are being evacuated to escape heavy shelling by Vladimir Putin’s forces.
The trio are thought to have been driving to collect Serhiy’s parents when their car was deliberately targeted with ‘heavy weaponry’ by Russian troops on Thursday.
