The dog of Ukrainian sailors captured by Russia was returned to Ukraine. This was reported by coordinator of the group of lawyers of Ukrainian POWs Nikolai Polozov on his Facebook page.  

“Dog Jessi, which was taken together with 24 Ukrainian sailors, was returned home today! Sailors of the Yany Kapu crew told the lawyers about the dog almost immediately after the meeting and asked to find it and try to return home. It took several months to find it and reach an agreement with the FSB and Kerch border guards, who were keeping it,” Polozov wrote.

“On the moment of capturing of Ukrainian ships and sailors, Jessi was 3 months. Sometime later, the border guards found it and kept it with them. The dog spent 8 months in Kerch, and today it arrived in Kherson region to the family of Sehiy Chuliba,” journalist Oleksandra Yefymenko wrote.
