Ukraine's Dolphin Army Is Dead After Refusing Russian Military Takeover, Claims Kiev

Dolphins trained by the Ukrainian military for missions at sea are likely dead because they refused food from Russian handlers and starved, a top official in Kiev has claimed .

“There is a very sad story related to the dolphins,” Borys Babin, Poroshenko’s permanent representative in Crimea, told Ukrainian news site Obozrevatel.

“The dolphins, trained by the [Ukrainian] naval forces in Sevastopol, would communicate with their trainers through special whistles,” Babin said.
