The Antares search and rescue dog unit discovered the remains of five children aged 3 and older, in addition to more than a hundred other bodies in Pokrovsk and Rivne, Donetsk region.

Larysa Borysenko, the head of the Pavlohrad search and rescue dog unit Antares, reported this on Hromadske Radio.

Antares is recognized as the only canine unit specializing in the search for human remains, that utilizes a unique methodology.

«We are engaged in searches with both the State Emergency Service and the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine under the project «On the Shield». We have dedicated 10 years to developing a methodology for searching for bodies and remains. Our dogs can work on the remains of a recent tragedy, as well as on remains that are 100 years old or more. There is no specific time limit for the dogs, but various factors, such as cats, dogs, birds, and rodents, can complicate the search», — Borysenko explained
