Kyiv residents could inspect a number of damaged and captured Russian tanks in the capital on Saturday as Ukraine gets ready to commemorate its independence day.

A video shared on Twitter showed people in the Ukrainian capital taking pictures and even climbing on the destroyed armored vehicles.

Ukraine commemorates its independence from the Soviet Union on August 24.

Ukrainian lawmaker Roman Hryshchuk tweeted "Russian tanks at the parade in the center of Kyiv."

"But, there is one nuance," he said, in an apparent ironic reference to the lack of Russian military personnel accompanying the vehicles.

On Thursday, a UK Ministry of Defense intelligence update reported "heavy attrition" of Russian tanks in Ukraine, which it partially attributed to "Russia's failure to fit and properly employ adequate explosive reactive armor."
