The cartridge is the official symbol of the International Focal Point for Humanitarian Demining. It weighs about 4 kilograms, which means that its body weight will not exceed 5 kilograms, which is also safe for detecting anti-personnel mines.

The dog, which has discovered more than 200 explosives since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, was awarded a medal for services to the country.

Patron, a two-and-a-half-year-old Jack Russell, was presented with the award by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky at a ceremony in Kyiv.

The terrier sniffs out Russian mines and explosives in the northeastern city of Chernihiv and acts as the mascot of the country's state emergency service.

He has become a national symbol of Ukraine's resistance, regularly appearing in videos on official Ukrainian social media.

“Today I want to reward those Ukrainian heroes who have already cleared mines from our land,” Zelensky said in a statement after the ceremony. “And together with our heroes, I want to reward a wonderful little sapper - Patron - who helps not only defuse explosives, but also teach our children the necessary safety rules in areas where there is a mine threat.”
