In a move of solidarity, Russia has donated a German Shepherd puppy to France after a beloved police dog named Diesel was killed in an anti-terror raid following the November Paris attacks.
During a ceremony at the French Embassy in Moscow yesterday, Russia’s Deputy Interior Minister handed over a German Shepherd puppy named Dobrynya, to the French Ambassador to honor the seven-year-old Belgian Shepherd Diesel, who was killed while taking part in a police raid in Saint-Denis, north of Paris
