People on the streets of Ukraine struggled to walk after ice covered the area. However, it was one woman’s constant attempt to make it down the pavement that has gone viral on social media.
In the 1.02-minute video clip, a woman continues to slip and fall, before eventually crawling across only to slip again and come back to the starting point.

While many could relate to her situation, others were clearly amused. Some even compared the woman’s struggle to the struggles of the ongoing year. “This is what 2020 has been for most of us,” wrote a user while commenting on the viral clip.
I’m really sorry to the people of Ukraine and hopefully nobody got hurt but I can’t stop laughing at the lone ranger trying so determinedly to go up. Gonna get popcorn and watch this all weekend
