Armed with flowers and Molotov cocktails, citizens of Ukraine are braving the violent Russian invasion fearlessly.

The Ukrainian defence ministry had urged citizens to resist when Russian forces entered capital Kyiv. The ministry asked residents to inform authorities of all Russian troop movements, and even “make molotov cocktails and neutralise the enemy”.

Soon after, Ukrainians looked up the recipe for Molotov cocktails – which is not a beverage – but an inflammable device which can be made at home.


It is made by pouring a flammable liquid into a glass bottle and plugging it with a cloth “fuse” before setting it on fire.
