People traveling away from the war-torn zone are trying to shelter their pets and flee with them.
Trigger Warning: This story contains details of the Russia-Ukraine conflict that may be disturbing for some readers.
The people of Ukraine are in a humanitarian crisis. Since Russia's invasion began, citizens are fighting for their lives and desperately trying to leave their homes in search of safety.
While some may have left their pets behind, others have ensured to take them along wherever they went—be it bomb shelters or neighboring countries.
Here are some photos from Ukraine that show how people traveling away from the war-torn zone are trying to shelter their pets and flee with them.
