Ukraine’s Center for Strategic Communications and Information Security announced that the Jack Russell terrier, named Patron, “helped defuse nearly 90 explosive devices since the beginning of the full-scale invasion”. They added: “One day, Patron’s story will be turned into a film, but for now, he is faithfully performing his professional duties.”

The two-year-old terrier works with State Emergency Service (SES) rescuers in Chernihiv, in the north of Ukraine.

He was branded “the mascot of Chernihiv” by the SES.

They shared more pictures of the dog to their Facebook page on Tuesday, calling him “our pyrotechnic dog Patron, who is loved by both adults and children”.

Patron has fans across Ukraine, shown by the dozens of illustrations of the hero dog drawn by people across the country.

Sharing the artwork to their Facebook page, the SES said: “Our brave baby Patron has inspired an incredible number of gifted artists and we are incredibly happy for that.

“It motivates not to give up no matter how hard it is, to keep the bar high and to fight with new strength, knowing how many people are still waiting for help and how many people believe in us.

“Our Patron doesn’t let his feet down either and sends his gratitude to everyone.

“Great heroes don’t necessarily have to be great.

“Therefore believe in your strength, in our defenders, in our Victory.”

This comes as Ukraine continues to fight back against the Russian invasion.

Russian forces have reportedly begun a renewed offensive to seize the East of Ukraine.

Earlier this week, the Ukrainian President announced Moscow had launched the anticipated offensive to take the Donbas region.

In a video address, he said: “Now we can already state that the Russian troops have begun the battle for the Donbas, for which they have been preparing for a long time.”

He said a “significant part of the entire Russian army is now concentrated on this offensive”.

But Mr Zelensky added: “No matter how many soldiers are driven there, we will defend ourselves.

“We will fight. We will not give up anything Ukrainian.”

Meanwhile, Mr Zelensky’s chief of staff Andriy Yermak declared: “The second phase of the war has started.”

While reliable figures for the death toll are hard to establish, Ukraine has estimated that 18,900 Russian soldiers have died since the beginning of the war, but Russia has disputed these figures.

Ukraine has estimated that 3,000 of its own troops have been killed since the start of the war.

Mr Zelensky is calling on Western nations to impose a full embargo on Russian energy and to supply Ukrainian forces with tanks and jets.
