Russian soldiers have been found to be living off a horrendous diet on numerous occasions during the invasion of Ukraine.
From videos showing how they just eat potatoes, onions and a few spices, to reports of them having to steal food from derelict grocery stores in war-torn areas, it's clear that Vladimir Putin's army are not exactly being well nourished on the frontline.
And now a new video has been circulated on Ukrainian Telegram channels of local cats appearing to be disgusted by Russian ration packs.
The video shows a Ukrainian soldier finding a Russian ration packet, which is apparently filled with just “goulash and potatoes”.
He then attempts to feed it to a black and white cat nearby, who seemingly wants nothing to do with the foul-looking gold tin filled with the classic meat stew and grey-looking potatoes.
According to a translation, the soldier says: “Even Ukrainian cats refuse to eat s*** like this.”
The contents of the tin look worse than most cat food brands, and the cat was clearly not impressed.
One user on Reddit wrote: “My grandma used to check if the food is of a good quality by giving it to her cat.
“If the cat ate it then it was OK, if not then no – so, yeah. Russian food is c***.”
And another added: “Cats are smarter than Russians, this is proof positive.
“The Russian Dry Ration was probably dated sometime from the early 90s. The original colour of the rations was probably white.”
Early on into Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the diet of the Russian army was revealed, after soldiers defending the besieged country conquered a battlefield kitchen.
Video taken by Ukrainian soldiers was posted on Reddit overnight showing a huge KamAZ armoured vehicle kitted out with a professional kitchen onboard.
But it is the contents of the cupboards – and floor – which has shocked internet users.
The footage gives a tour of the vehicle, captured in Ukraine, which was seemingly left during fighting in recent weeks.
The storage unit part of the truck shows bags upon bags of potatoes and onions, while the kitchen itself – seemingly ransacked by locals – shows more bags of potatoes and onions.
The soldier, speaking in Ukrainian over the tour, also finds more and more bags of the same two vegetables on the floor, piled high.
He then opens a few drawers to find crockery and one other food item – jars of pickles.
The large jars are actually smashed, so the pickles can't be re-used.
