Ukraine’s Patron, a Jack Terrier, on Sunday received a service medal from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for helping the country’s military clear mines and explosives.

The sapper dog helped Ukrainian forces clear areas previously occupied by Russian military forces and helped teach Ukrainian children “the necessary safety rules in a mine-affected area,” the Kiev Independent reported.

“Today, I want to reward the Ukrainian heroes who are already clearing our land mines. And together with our heroes, a wonderful little sapper – Patron – who not only helps defuse explosives, but also helps our children learn the necessary safety rules. There are threats, “Zelensky told a news conference, according to Reuters.

Patron’s owner, Myhilo Iliev, a head of the Civil Protection Service, was also presented with an award during the ceremony, the report said.

Russian airstrikes on Ukrainian schools are believed to have killed at least 72 people in Luhansk, the governor said.
