Ukrainian civilians tried to stop Russian convoys from entering their city without any weapons in some heroic footage shared online.

Shocking satellite images from Tuesday revealed a 40-mile long convoy of Russian vehicles heading towards the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv as Vladimir Putin stepped up his unprovoked attack on the European country.

But the Kremlin is not just focusing on Kyiv – new videos on social media show civilians trying to fight off tanks from the Luhansk region, which is much further south than the capital.

The remaining citizens can be seen standing in the way of the military vehicles as they try to plow through Ukrainian streets.

Civilians were echoing these efforts further south as well.

The footage has emerged just hours after Putin bombed a Holocaust memorial site in Ukraine.

Babyn Yar, a site of one of the worst mass killings of Jews during World War II, was hit on Tuesday evening, shortly after the Russian president had called for the “denazification” of the country.

Ukraine’s second-largest city Kharkiv is under attack too. Fighting between the Russian forces and the Ukrainian resistance there continued throughout the night.

Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenksyy claims he will not pursue peace talks with Russia until Putin calls off the fighting and the bombing.
