Ukrainian woman continues 'mission' to find and rescue animals from Ukraine-Russia war zones

Natalia Popova, 50, continues to travel into war zones where she has already located and rescued hundreds of animals, before she rehabilitates them and finds them a permanent home elsewhere in Europe.

“No one wants to go there. Everyone is afraid. I am also scared, but I go anyway,” Popova said. “I feel very sorry for them. I can imagine the stress animals are under because of the war, and no one can help them.”

“They are my life,” she added “My mission in this war is to save wild animals.”
