Kharkiv psychologist Petro Poliashchenko together with his labrador dog Rada are conducting canistherapy sessions for children. They have just visited the village of Yakovlivka near Kharkiv that had been shelled by the Russian army in March.

“Talking to the dog, talking to each other, all this gives you positive emotions. This shows that at the time of war there is room for humanity, communication, emotions, joy, and there is room for friendship and love,” Petro says.
