People in France reacted very warmly to a gesture of friendship on behalf of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs when it sent a puppy, named Dobrynya, to French police.
After the tragic death of Diesel, a 7-year-old Belgian Malinois, which was a member of a French anti-terrorist police unit, the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs sent Dobrynya to show solidarity with the French people and their police in the fight against terrorism.

Moscow (AFP) – Russia has offered to send an Alsatian puppy to France in a gesture of solidarity after a police dog was killed during a raid on jihadists linked to the Paris attacks.
Russia’s interior minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev said he had written to his French counterpart Bernard Cazeneuve offering to send a puppy named Dobrynya to replace Diesel, a Belgian Shepherd killed in a huge raid north of Paris last Wednesday.
Kolokoltsev said that as “a sign of solidarity with the people and police of France,” he was offering the puppy, which “will be able to occupy the place in service of the police dog Diesel killed during a special operation to neutralise terrorists.”
The dog is named after a hero of Russian folk legend, Dobrynya Nikitch, famed for his strength, goodness and courage, he added.
The ministry late Friday posted pictures of the small fluffy puppy and a video of him playing with a ball, which can be viewed here: https://mvd.ru/news/item/6802710.
The puppy was also shown on state television on Saturday.
Dobrynya is two months old and lives at a police dog centre in the Moscow region, Channel One television reported. He will have to undergo medical checks and quarantine before going to France.
