Russians are known as hard men, who won’t back out of a fight. Even when they do the most heartwarming things, they still manage to look tough.

In February 2015, a video about a Russian went viral. In the clip, a Russian man known only as Ivan went an extra mile to save a dog stranded in a frozen lake. The warm-blooded swimmer is seen going into the cold frozen lake, using his hands to smash the ice, in order to get the dog. He eventually saved the scared pup.

According to a Russian news channel, Ivan stopped near the lake to help a motorist whose car broke down. While talking with the driver, the 21-year-old heard the dog barking. Seeing the poor pup, Ivan quickly went to work at rescuing the dog.
