Employees of the State Emergency Service (SES) rescued a kitten while extinguishing a fire caused by a Russian rocket attack on the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, their press service reported on Facebook on Sept. 4.

"In Kharkiv, rescuers saved a kitten while extinguishing a fire caused by a rocket attack on a restaurant-hotel complex,” the report read, adding, that “the cat was handed over to volunteers and its injured leg will be treated."

The young feline was given oxygen and water at the scene.

The social media post ended with the rescuers wishing the kitten a speedy recovery.

Ukrainian first responders have repeatedly proven that they will save every type of life in addition to the nation’s citizens, including their four-legged friends.

Earlier, on social media, a post by Yuliya Chemen described the beautiful story of SES employees in Kirovohrad Oblast responding in the middle of the night to rescue a dog stuck in a basement.

A surprisingly rotund raccoon dog also got stuck in wooden fencing surrounding a resort in the town of Bilyaivka, Odesa Oblast last month. State Emergency Service workers managed to rescue that animal as well.
