MOSCOW, November 12. /TASS/. The Russian Interior Ministry will send a police puppy to French colleagues after a police dog named Diesel was killed in Paris atrocities, ministry’s spokesperson Elena Alekseyeva said on Friday.
"The police puppy’s name is Dobrynya. He was named after a Russian knight, Dobrynya, a symbol of strength, kindness, valor and selfless help. The puppy will be sent to France as a sign of solidarity with the French people and police fighting against terrorism," Alekseyeva said on her Instagram page.
Diesel, a seven-year old Belgian shepherd dog, was killed on Wednesday during the police raid on the apartment in St. Denis, where the alleged mastermind of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris was hiding.
According to Alekseyeva, Russian Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev has sent a letter to his French counterpart, Bernard Cazeneuve, expressing "support for French colleagues in connection with the tragic events in France" and assuring him in Russia’s readiness for further cooperation to combat crime and terrorism.
The minister has expressed hope that the Russian puppy "will be able to replace Diesel the police dog killed in the line of duty," Alekseyeva said.
