MOSCOW, August 6. /TASS/. The Russian Investigative Committee’s officers have found and returned a guide dog stolen from its blind owner in Moscow last week.
After the dog, a golden labrador named Diana, was stolen from Yulia Dyakova, hundreds of Muscovites joined a social media appeal to find the animal and identify the kidnapper.
Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin vowed to help Dyakova, who is completely dependent on the guide dog.
"The search for a missing dog is not our responsibility," Markin said on Thursday. "But when the head of the Russian Investigative Committee saw media reports of the blind girl’s misfortune, he ordered the Moscow city and region departments to join the search."
As a result, Diana was found in a dog shelter in the town of Stupino, some 80 kilometres to the south of Moscow, he added.
"I am very happy," said Dyakova when Diana was returned.
The dog was also identified by its trainer.
Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov
has thanked Russian Investigation Committee employees for finding a blind woman’s guide dog, which was stolen a week ago.
"We have to give credit to our investigators who have found the dog. No one believed that it was possible. But they have performed a miracle. So let’s congratulate our investigators," Peskov said on Thursday.
