"Military" dolphins trained by Ukraine and seized by Russian troops died after "going on hunger strike", it is claimed.
The "dolphin army" was seized by Russian forces from the Crimean Military Dolphin Centre during the annexation in 2014.
“There can be no talk about any Ukrainian patriotism with regards to the combat dolphins because under Ukraine, the special forces dolphins… were involved entirely in commercial activities, not underwater operations."
According to the Guardian, the Crimean military dolphin centre is just one of two in the world.
