Cat joins the Defense Minister at the ceremony honoring Ukrainian soldiers

On April 22, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov was hit by a cat while honoring troops outside a church in Moschun, near Kiev. The village, located less than 3 miles from the city limits of Kiev, was badly damaged as Russian armed forces unsuccessfully attempted to capture the Ukrainian capital. Ukrainian officials say it was battles in the suburbs like Moschun that saved Kiev. On Friday, Reznikov recognized the troops during a ceremony in Moschun, outside the Church of St. John the Divine. The video posted on his social media accounts showed that he was joined by a white-furred feline at the event. Credit: Oleksii Reznikov via Storyful
