As Russian forces close in on Ukraine’s biggest cities, including Kyiv, civilians are taking up arms and making Molotov cocktails as they prepare to defend their homes.

Ukrainian citizens have been answering the call from their government to make Molotov cocktails to attack invading Russian tanks.

People across Ukraine, including in the capital Kyiv and Dnipro, have been seen gathering materials to pack polystyrene plastic and gasoline into bottles in preparation for battle.

Ukraine is outmanned and outgunned by the sophisticated and highly staffed Russian military, but so far Russian forces have failed to make a decisive blow against Ukraine’s armed forces or its leaders.

The Ukrainian government has been broadcasting the recipe for the improvised incendiary weapon on national radio stations and on Telegram.

The Pravda Brewery in Lviv announced it will pause manufacturing beer and switch to making Molotov cocktails instead.

The company’s label shows Russian President Vladimir Putin sitting naked on a throne and reads “Putin is a dickhead”.

All over Ukraine people are being given weapons and joining units of the Territorial Defence Force to defend their homes, after the country’s military said that anyone who could hold a gun could have one.
