Ukraine won? Wussia lost?
While most of us who have been studying Russia’s immense propaganda war against Ukraine have been mostly focused on the Russian effort to saturate global media with toxic trash intended to demean and dirty all things Ukrainian, the Ukrainians fought a very effective counter-campaign in a totally unexpected way – saturating global social and mass media with photos and footage of soldiers and their pet cats and dogs, almost exclusively rescued from the warzone in Eastern Ukraine’s Donbass region. With almost 2 million local residents fleeing West into Ukraine, large numbers of pets were abandoned or lost as these internal refugees fled.
The abandoned pets were rescued in large numbers by Ukrainian Army, National Guard and Militia troops, and usually taken home once the troops were rotated out of the warzone, although many were also directly relocated to pet shelters in Central and Western Ukraine.
Russia’s attempt to counter with a ‘Most Patriotic Cat’ Competition was unable to produce any significant media impact, compared to the viral propagation of Ukrainian “warcat” photos in global mass and social media.
