Two fearless Ukrainian bomb disposal personnel have been filmed defusing a massive Russian explosive — using just their bare hands and a bottle of water.

Footage of the alarming ordeal was shared online by the the Ukrainian Armed Forces on Wednesday.

One of the bomb experts could be seen carefully unscrewing the top of the explosive as the second specialist slowly dripped water on it to prevent static discharge.

The bomb disposal specialists carried out the alarming task even as huge explosions unfolded in the background.

Neither of the men appeared to be wearing substantial protective equipment at the time.

It wasn’t immediately clear where, or when, the hair-raising video was filmed.
