In a video tweeted by the Barstool Sports podcast “Zero Blog Thirty,” people got a glimpse of Ukrainian men enjoying their time with a reported captured tank.
Some people speculated that Ukraine’s civilians, many of whom have been forced to join the mobilization efforts and stay in the country, are confiscating Russian artillery and tanks. “This war has been a logistical mess from Russia. There are several tanks just running out of fuel and soldiers completely cut off from supply lines – that’s why these tanks are being captured,” a person commented on the post.
“Ukrainian territorial defense fighters captured a Russian tank near Kharkiv and managed to get it running,” the tweet read.
In a separate video that had me howling, you can see Ukrainians towing Russian equipment via tractor.
The text read: “Meanwhile fighting in most major cities right now, a tractor driver steals Russian military equipment in Ukraine. Things are so unorganized on the Russian side.”
There are so many videos surfacing of Ukrainians towing away broken Russian equipment that I almost feel embarrassed for the invading troops. If this invasion has shown us anything, it’s the unwavering bravery of the Ukrainian people. Another video (last one, I promise) showed an alleged man that stopped a Russian tank and kneeled down in front of it. He was reportedly taken away by locals but I feel confident this video will go down in history.
In the video, a man wants to stop a Russian tank and rushes under it. The tank stopped and the man was taken away by locals.

Russian forces battled for control of a crucial energy-producing city in Ukraine’s south on Thursday and gained ground in their bid to cut off the country from the sea, as Ukrainian leaders called on citizens to rise up and wage guerrilla war against the invaders.
The fighting at Enerhodar, a city on the Dnieper River that is the site of the biggest nuclear power plant in Europe and accounts for one-quarter of the country’s power generation, came as another round of talks between the two sides yielded a tentative agreement to set up safe corridors inside Ukraine to evacuate citizens and deliver humanitarian aid.
