Badass Ukrainian man moves land mine with bare hands in video while smoking casually
As defiant Ukrainians continue to set precedents for courage and patriotism in their fight against Russia, another video of a "badass: Ukrainian hero has now taken over the world. In a viral clip, the unnamed man can be seen moving a land mine from the middle of the road with his bare hands, while casually puffing on a cigarette. He was hailed as a hero on social media for risking his own life to save others around him.
In the past few days, Ukraine saw civilians turning into heroes overnight, as one woman confronted Russian soldiers and asked them to "Put sunflower seeds in your pockets so they grow on Ukraine soil when you die." Marine soldier Vitali Shakun made the ultimate sacrifice by blowing himself up along with a bridge, simply to buy some time for his battalion to regroup before Russian soldiers arrived. Another 80-year-old man was lauded for enlisting in the army to protect his grandkids.
In the latest viral video, the fearless Ukrainian man can be seen wearing a black puffer jacket and jeans, with a freshly lit cigarette dangling from his mouth. The unidentified man came across the land mine on a road in Berdyansk. The video shows him calmly picking it up and walking away. Incidentally, the port city of Berdyansk near the Sea of Azov was taken over by Russians recently.
In the video, the man then proceeds to carry the explosive device with his bare hands while taking utmost precaution. He slowly takes the anti-tank mine into a forested area away from the road. The video, filmed on the phone by someone else, shows him moving deeper into the forest amid bushes and hedges.
Reacting to the video on Twitter, one user wrote, "Most people can’t even pick up their dog’s poop, this legend is moving a Russian land mine with his bare hands. #DefendUkraine #Ukraine."
"Southern Ukraine. You can be cool, but you'll never be "I found this land mine on the road and decided to bring it to the nearby forest" cool," a second user remarked, while a third tweeted, "Heros are everywhere in the Ukraine! Man handling a land mine like a boss!"
"After seeing that video of a Ukraine civilian picking up a land mine with his bare hands I don’t see how Russians want any smoke with them people," tweeted another.
"What a legend. Live land mine. Bare handed. Didn’t even drop his cigarette," one user said.

The latest photos show a man with a prosthetic leg taking up guns and pledging to defend his country against invading Russians. Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy earned accolades from around the world as he declined the US' offer to evacuate him and stepped into the frontlines in combat gear. On the remote Snake Island, a group of thirteen soldiers yelled, "Go F**k Yourself" to the invading Russian Navy, moments before they were all killed in a vicious bout of bombing. In Kyiv, a fighter jet pilot was lauded as the 'Ghost of Kyiv' after he single-handedly knocked down six Russian fighter jets in the air to air combat.
