One brave Ukrainian is going viral for appearing to mock a group of Russian soldiers.

In a video shared on social media - which has also been shared by outlets such as The Guardian and The Indpendent - a Ukrainian man purportedly can be heard ribbing a convoy of Russian troops who have run out of gas in the middle of the countryside.

The video is the latest to trend on social media amid the Ukraine-Russia conflict, however, it has not been verified as to who actually recorded the video or when it was originally filmed. Fox News, however, has confirmed the accuracy of the subtitles in the clip.

The tank - which was reportedly stalled on the side of a country road - was surrounded by Russian troops, who appeared to be trying to fix their vehicle.

According to a translation of the clip by The Guardian, the Ukrainian man allegedly asks them: "Are you guys broke? Broken down?"

The Russians respond that they are "out of fuel" - to which the Ukrainian has a quick response.

"Can I tow you back... to Russia?" he asks them - and even the soldiers can't help but laugh.

The Ukrainian man goes on to ask if they know where they are going, to which the Russians respond uncertainly: "To Kyiv, damn it, f*** off," before asking what the media is saying about their invasion.

Unphased by the soldiers, he responds that "everyone is on [Ukraine's] side" and tells them that Russians are "surrender well because the boys also do not know where they are going." He then drives off, leaving the troops in the dust.

The clip is just one of the many examples of Ukrainians bravely standing up to invaders that have been circulating on social media. In another clip, another man can be heard joking with Russian troops when they try to get him to stop filming.

One user provided a translation of the video in the comments, explaining that once the man had identified the soldiers as Russian he ribbed them by trying to get them to say "palyanitsia" - a word difficult for Russian speakers to pronounce.

When the troops headed over and asked him to stop filming, the man reportedly stood his ground, saying: "Why can't I film? Phew. Who told you I can't film? Ukrainian constitution allows me to film. I'm at my home, why can't I film? Look, I want to film trees, look."
