There are two animal rescue groups I know of helping in Ukraine which you will find out about by watching the videos.

I read carefully everything you wrote about doing business with Russians....they will always wait for the moment to rob and destroy you.

Thats too bad, I heard many Dutch zoo's already inquired if they needed to provide shelter but their calls went unanswered.

Yes, it would have been better if the Ukrainian zoo had answered the calls from the Netherlands.

Not being there,  I'd first assume the handlers care deeply for them.
I doubt it was an easy decision.
  On them being transported elsewhere I know they were asking for such for awhile, I know some other animals were relocated.

So yes it seems a tragedy if an avenue of saving them was somehow missed or impossible in the time frame.
I would highly  doubt it was intentional in any case.
