The world’s sanctions on Russia are not simply on politics. Pets in this country are also being accused of being “aggressors”.
Even pets in Russia are being accused of “aggression” and banned. The world is punishing this country in all fields. From politics, economy, finance, travel, aviation, diplomacy, sports, e-sports, Olympics, art, and so on.
Fédération Internationale Féline (FIFé) (not FIFA) “imitated” FIFA to announce a ban on Russian cats on a global scale. Specifically, they call on affiliates in all countries to stop importing Cats raised in Russia and that Russia-affiliated organizations are not allowed to participate in exhibitions and competitions organized by FIFé.
In addition, the statement also said that FIFé has decided to dedicate a part of its budget to supporting cats and owners in Ukraine.
Their statement on the website and FB
FIFé is a 73-year-old cat registry federation, founded in France. They have now forty-two member organizations in forty countries in Europe, South America, and Asia.
FIFe’s decision leads Netizens to make fun of it, especially in Vietnam. “Cats or pets cannot be involved in politics. They cannot hold guns or use cannons”.

“Did the Russian cat attack or mistreat the Ukrainian cat?” – quote a comment.
“Cats can’t choose their “nationality” or where they were born. They’re not human, they don’t divide national boundaries as humans do. Their territorial boundaries are not the same as our national borders”.
“Cats are completely innocent.”
“Why are you still using Mendeleev’s periodic table and reading Tolstoy‘s books?” – other comment.
Netizens criticized FIFe’s actions as going against its principle and mission of protecting the welfare of cats. The organization’s FB fanpage currently receives many negative reviews.
