Why the Molotov Cocktail Is a Lethal Weapon of Choice in Ukraine

As Russian forces meet fierce resistance from Ukrainian military forces and civilians alike, the owners of Lviv-based Pravda Brewery have pivoted to making petrol bombs, known colloquially as Molotov cocktails, to aid in the country’s defense.

On Saturday, Feb. 26, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine shared instructions on Twitter, detailing how to make Molotov cocktails. The accompanying caption encouraged Ukrainians to fight back, saying, “While our partners load planes and cars with weapons for Ukraine, we are preparing our branded ‘brotherly’ gift for the Russian bastards. We are arming ourselves, preparing, and destroying the occupiers!”
