Photos of Russian tanks daubed with the now infamous word have flooded social media platforms and are a direct reference to the 1984 Cold War-era film Red Dawn.
The post-apocalyptic film follows a battle hardened Patrick Swayze and a group of high school students as they battle a fictional Soviet invasion of the United States.
The crew leaves “Wolverines” tags – a direct reference to their old high school football team – whenever they strike at their hometown of Calumet. Colorado.
The fictional occupation of Colorado ends in disaster for the Soviet and Cuban occupiers.
Russian troops have met fierce Ukrainian resistance since the war began 52 days ago.
Online forums are awash with flashy clips of Ukrainian drones obliterating Russian military equipment.
Recent footage shows the complete devastation inflicted on a multi-million dollar tank by a supposedly $10,000 drone.
In the clip, the drone hangs menacingly in the air as it appears to be watching its Russian target – which could be a Russian T-72 tank.
It then drops a bomb that rushes toward the unsuspecting war machine before a perfect strike rips the tank apart in a massive inferno.
The blitz comes as evil Putin has now lost a staggering amount 20,000 soldiers in Ukraine.

Major General Vladimir Frolov, deputy commander of the 8th Combined Arms Army, was killed in action and buried with full military honors in St. Petersburg.
The exact details of how and where he died have not been released.
