This is the heartbreaking moment a traumatized dog stands over the ruins of his home after a Russian missile attack wiped out his family in Ukraine.
The atrocity in Dnipro early yesterday morning killed the owners of Krym (Crimea) Natalia, her children Vasylisa, 12 and Ivan, 8, their grandmother Alla and their puppy Jack.
The devastated Krym (Crimea) was found howling on the ruins by first responders who took him to the vet.
And her father returned home from fighting at the front to find his whole life torn apart.
The footage shows Crimea looking alone and forlorn as he stands still in the crater where his home was once.
The distraught dog turns away as the filmer zooms in on the ruins and debris.
Confused and terrified, Krym didn’t want to leave the house, claiming on social media he was deaf and blinded by the blast.
The family had lived on Polia Street in Dnipro, but early in the invasion they moved to her grandmother’s house in another neighborhood where the rocket attack took place.
