A brave Ukrainian man has been filmed trying to block a convoy of several Russian tanks with just his hands as the invasion of the country continued.

Dramatic footage shows the moment a man tries to stop a Russian tank with his bare hands during the Ukraine invasion.

Video footage filmed in Bakhmach, north-east of Kyiv, shows the unidentified man putting his hands on the tank as a brave attempt to obstruct the path of the Russian military.

Major attacks overnight included a gas pipeline outside Kharkiv that was set ablaze by Russian troops, and an oil depot in Vasylkiv near Kyiv that was destroyed by a Russian missile strike.

The streets of central Kyiv lay almost deserted in the winter sunshine on Sunday, with residents ordered to stay in shelters as Russian forces continued to shell the city’s outskirts, although some were still trying to leave despite the curfew.

On the fourth day of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the capital was still in Ukrainian government hands, with President Volodymyr Zelensky rallying his people despite Russian attacks on civilian infrastructure.
