The Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs decided to send a puppy to their French counterparts to replace Diesel the police dog that was killed during a police raid in Paris on Wednesday.

Diesel, a 7-year-old Belgian Malinois, was a member of a French anti-terrorist police unit. The dog bravely died when the French Special Forces raided an apartment building in Saint-Denis.

To support the French policemen, the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs decided to send them a little German Shepherd puppy, named Dobrynya [after one of the most popular folk heroes in Russian culture], Elena Alekseeva, the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, said on Instagram.

Этого щенка служебной собаки зовут Добрыня. Его назвали так в честь русского былинного богатыря Добрыни, который является воплощением силы, добра, воинской доблести и бескорыстной помощи. Щенок будет передан Франции в знак солидарности с французским народом и полицией в борьбе с терроризмом. Ce petit chien est le chien de service qui s’appelle Dobrynia. Il a été nommé ainsi a l’honneur du légendaire héros russe Dobrynya, qui est la personnification de la force, de la bonté, de la bravoure et de l’altruisme. Ce chien sera remis à la France en temoignage de la solidarité avec le peuple français ainsi que la police francaise dans le cadre de la lutte contre le terrorisme.

Although still a pup, Dobrynya would hopefully grow up to be an important member of the French anti-terrorist police unit. “The puppy will be transferred to France to show solidarity with the French people and their police in the fight against terrorism,” Alekseeva said.

Diesel was killed during the siege in Saint-Denis that targeted terrorists involved in the Paris attacks. The dog was sent upstairs to check out a potentially dangerous situation before police officers could move in for an attack.
