Hundreds of unarmed Ukrainians forced Russian military tanks to halt on the outskirts of Koryukivka, a border town, by blocking their way in the ongoing #Russiaukrainewar.
According to reports, lost Russian soldiers stopped to ask for directions and were surrounded by locals.
In video footage from the incident, Ukrainians can be seen going towards a convoy of tanks in order to block them from approaching the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv. While the military watched from their war vehicles, the brave men created a human shield, forcing the convoy to retreat.
On Sunday, the Ukrainian land forces issued a statement praising the heroic inhabitants, writing: “Take Koryukivka as an example! We are on the land that God has given us “.
The footage was released a day after a brave Ukrainian man was caught using just his hands to block a convoy of multiple Russian tanks.
On Monday, the Russian invasion on Ukraine reached its fifth day, with President Volodymyr Zelensky declaring that the next 24 hours would be a “crucial period” for his country.
