A furious cat in a Kyiv subway bomb shelter has gone viral as it flashed a look as though it wanted to kill Vladimir Putin as missiles rained down on the capital.

In the snap, Chloe the cat is wrapped in a pink blanket and is shooting one of her meanest glances, much to the delight of social media users around the world.

Igor Novikov, a former adviser to President Volodymyr Zelensky, shared the photo on his Twitter account, writing: ‘Chloe the cat in a bomb shelter in Kyiv. We all are Chloe the cat at the moment.’

Local news outlet United24.media said the image ‘relays the mood of the whole Ukrainian nation’.

The picture was also shared on the ukrainianwarcats Instagram account, which is filled with loveable pics of soldiers cuddling felines and looking cute in otherwise sobering scenes of war.

The image was taken on the same day that a nine-year-old girl, her mother and another woman were killed in a Russian missile strike on the capital.

Heavy air strikes in Kyiv on Monday saw metro stations, including the central station, Tetatralna, packed with people taking shelter, although many residents ignored the air raid alarm until they heard loud blasts in the city centre. 

On the same day, a Ukrainian couple who tied the knot on live TV were forced to quickly flee to a bomb shelter due to the bombardment.

Air defence fighter Oleksandr Tereshchenko, 34, married war paramedic Tetyana Snidanok on the 1+1 channel breakfast TV show.

The couple exchanged vows and sealed their marriage with a passionate kiss on camera before performing their first dance in front of presenters and technical staff in the studio.

But just minutes later, they were forced to take cover along with several other residents as the all too familiar sound of air sirens restarted, indicating Putin had ordered yet more barbaric strikes on the capital.

Despite the terrifying assault on their country by Russia, the newlyweds did not let it ruin their special day.

Footage from inside the bomb shelter shows them laughing and smiling, while presenter Katya Nesterenko shared a video of them kissing at around 11.30am as Kyiv locals also took cover.

‘Kyiv air raid alarm. Wedding. Cover up,’ she said on Facebook. ‘Everything will be Ukraine!’

The New Voice of Ukraine reports that Oleksandr and Tetyana remained in the bomb shelter until the air raid alert was turned off – as others hiding underground congratulated them on their nuptials.
