Damien Sharkov – May 16, 2018

Dolphins trained by the Ukrainian military for missions at sea are likely dead because they refused food from Russian handlers and starved, a top official in Kiev has claimed .The facility for training sea mammals in Crimea is one of several Ukrainian assets that fell under Russian control in 2014 following Moscow’s annexation of the territory. Since then, Ukrainian authorities have made repeated requests for the return of the animals it began training in 2012.Four years later, Ukraine appears to have lost hope it will see its service animals again, after an envoy of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said he was informed that the dolphins are dead.
