The Ukrainian Ministry of Defence (MoD) have shared images of destroyed Russian tanks which are on display in the capital, Kyiv which looks like a “scene from a zombie movie.”
Ukraine has sent Russian troops a fresh warning after more than 300 were killed over the weekend and more than 45,000 are estimated to have been killed since the start of the war, on 24 February.
Ahead of Ukraine’s 31st anniversary of independence from Soviet rule this Wednesday President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that people will not be able to meet in large groups over the threat of rocket attacks.

The MoD shared images of destroyed Russian tanks on display in Kyiv for the 31st anniversary, saying “It may look like a scene from a zombie apocalypse movie.
“But the careers of 45,000 Russian zombies are finished. The centre of Kyiv is only hosting their burned equipment.
“The set has already been built. Hollywood, this could be turned into a cool movie!”
The delusional 🇷🇺 arrogantly invaded 🇺🇦. I saw for myself the ceremonial uniforms in their tanks.
The aggressors dreamt of capturing Kyiv in 3 days.
The occupiers intended to hold a parade in our capital.
Ok, they're here.
Tons of scrap metal.

This comes after a televised address by President Zelensky during which he praised his countrymen for their resistance in the face of Moscow’s aggression.
President Zelensky warned, “We should be aware that this week Russia may try to do something particularly nasty, something particularly cruel.
“Such is our enemy. But in any other week during these six months, Russia did the same thing all the time – disgusting and cruel.
“One of the key tasks of the enemy is to humiliate us, Ukrainians, to devalue our capabilities, our heroes, to spread despair, fear, to spread conflicts.
“Therefore, it is important never, for a single moment, to give in to this enemy pressure, not to wind oneself up, not to show weakness.”

He added, “We must all be strong enough to resist any enemy provocations – as much as it takes to make the occupiers answer for all their blows and terror – for Kharkiv and Donbas, for Azovstal and Mykolaiv, for the filtration camps, for Bucha, Irpin for all cities.
“We must all be strong enough to endure and go all the way to Ukrainian victory.”
