Russian forces have faced their toughest challenge yet: a heroic goat.
A goat situated in Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia region has accidentally triggered a series of tripwires set by the Russian military and inadvertently injured them with their own pinned grenades.
Ukrainian media outlet Pravda reported, via Ukraine’s Chief Intelligence Directorate, that a total of 40 Russian invaders had been injured at a medical institution in Kinski Rozdory.
The military personnel had installed pinned grenades and placed tripwires around the perimeter of the hospital in a ‘circular defence’.
A decision they most certainly regretted.
The goat moved around the area and ‘disposed of’ several grenades, which triggered a chain reaction and wounded the soldiers to varying degrees.
This begs the question of whether the goat was an undercover member of the Ukrainian military?
According to Smithsonian Mag, goats are highly intelligent and inquisitive by nature, so perhaps the goat knew what it was doing.
Unfortunately, it is unclear whether the brave goat survived, however, we are sure he will live on in the memories of all Ukrainians just as the Snake Island heroes have.
A defiant group of Ukrainian soldiers who were defending the island off the coast of Ukraine from a Russian warship famously told the Russian soldiers to 'go f**k yourself'.
Animals have been as steadfast as the Ukrainian people in their resistance to the Russian invasion, with help coming in all forms and sizes.
Last month Patron, a pint-sized Jack Russel terrier, was recognised for detecting more than 200 explosives during the invasion.
Parton was honoured for his bravery by President Zelenskyy at a news conference in Kyiv with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Zelenskyy said in a statement: “I want to award those Ukrainian heroes who are already clearing our land of mines.
“And together with our heroes, a wonderful little sapper - Patron - who helps not only to neutralise explosives but also to teach our children the necessary safety rules in areas where there is a mine threat.”
As of tomorrow (June 24), the attempted Russian occupation of Ukraine will have raged on for four months.
The Ukrainian people and forces have been valiant in fighting off their invaders.
According to the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, Russia has suffered 34,100 personnel losses, and Ukraine has destroyed 1,496 tanks and 3,606 Armour Protected Vehicles.
