A long-awaited reunion with Barsik on Ukraine Independence Day

We were delighted to facilitate a long-awaited reunion with Barsik on Ukraine Independence Day for owner Valya. Valya — who's from Pryluky, about 40 miles east of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv — is staying in the UK with sponsor Ruth in North Yorkshire.

The story of Emilio from Lisbon
