This is the bizarre moment a man in the middle of the street refuses to let vehicles pass and attacks two buses with a shovel while reportedly shouting “f*ck coronavirus”.

The incident was filmed in the city of Kemerovo in the southern Russian Kemerovo Oblast and the footage has been widely circulated on social media.

In the video, the shovel-wielding man is too slow to stop a silver car passing by his ‘roadblock’, but manages to hold up a bus.

The man then pummels the windscreen with the shovel before standing in front of the bus and apparently refusing to allow it to pass.

He then starts hitting the windows with the shovel again and the bus driver reverses alongside another bus.

The second bus tries to pass, but the man starts pummelling the windows before two cops approach him and take away the shovel.

Eyewitnesses said the man was shouting at road users: “You won’t drive past. F*ck coronavirus (COVID-19).”

It is unclear whether the man is facing charges for his unusual roadblock.

As of 6th April, Russia has reported 5,389 cases of COVID-19 and 45 related deaths, according to the latest data from the Johns Hopkins University.

Meanwhile, 355 people have made full recoveries.
