Ukrainian soldiers filmed themselves rocking out to Nirvana's most famous song Smells Like Teen Spirit in a social media post that is being shared to troll Russia.

The five soldiers are seen, weapons in hand, dancing around as the lyrics 'Here we are now, entertain us,' blare out on the soundtrack, in a moment of light relief amid the horrors they are facing daily as they fend off the Russian advance following the invasion of their country.

Soldiers the world over are known for their banter and keeping a brave face by finding moments of humour, even when coping with the traumas of frontline combat in warfare.

It seems the Armed Forces in Ukraine are no exception, despite the many shocking reports emerging from the country, as they danced for the video which is now going viral on the internet, with many taking it as way of trolling Russian troops.

The comment with the post, translated into English, reads: "Keep calm and do not panic. Believe in the warriors (soldiers), believe in the Ukrainian armed forces. We will win. Glory to Ukraine."

It was shared by Ukrainian army officer Anatoly Stefan, whose posts on TikTok have gone viral since the conflict began, earning him more than 4.3 million followers on the social media platform, and another 50,000 on Twitter. He is reported to regularly post on social media to let his daughter know he is still alive.

Stefan is known for his antics on TikTok, and his viral videos often feature him dancing to tracks by Michael Jackson, Nirvana and others, in the midst of the battlefield, either on his own or with his fellow fighters.
