Ukrainians Celebrate As They Take Mad Joyride On 'Captured' Russian Tank

A group of Ukrainian men have taken a ‘captured’ Russian tank on a joyride as Putin's forces abandon equipment and weapons.

Local resistance forces shared a 24-second video of them careering around the frozen fields of Slatyne, Ukraine, and can be heard celebrating, swearing, and laughing atop the T-80BVM armoured battle tank.

In the short clip, one man can be heard shouting 'we did it' and 'glory to Ukraine' as his local resistance pals laugh.

Ukrainian defenders also discovered what appeared to be a vacuum bomb launcher.

According to a weapons tracking expert, the Russian TOS-1A thermobaric MRLS was found in 'good condition and fully loaded'.

The wild footage surfacing on social media comes as Putin’s troops are fleeing from battle and surrendering without a fight, according to some reports.

As the first week since Russia invaded Ukraine nears a conclusion, the Ukrainian defence ministry has launched an apparent attempt to shame and embarrass Russia for how it is going, offering Russian mothers the chance to come and get their sons to take them home.

The Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk has also asked the International Red Cross to give them assistance in getting the dead bodies of Russia soldiers back to their homeland.

Last week she said: "There are thousands of invaders’ bodies. This is a humanitarian need.

"We ask for the bodies of the invaders to leave Ukrainian territory and go to Russia.

"We call upon Russians again to make it so that there are fewer bodies of your sons, of your men, otherwise there will be thousands of them."

She concluded: “I say it again, victory will be ours.”

In another statement released by the Ukrainian military, it was claimed that a group of Russian soldiers who were captured had only learned they were being sent to Ukraine the day before the invasion commenced, and thought they were only heading there to gather information before being sent home.

Ukraine's emergency service says more than 2,000 people have been killed since Russia's invasion of the country began on February 24.
