Video of a Ukrainian sniper killing a Russian soldier from a distance of 2,710 meters

A Ukrainian sniper managed to kill a Russian soldier after spotting him with his rifle scope from a distance of 2,710 meters, thus occupying the third degree after two world records, the first for a Canadian sniper in Iraq and the second for a British sniper in Afghanistan.

The “Ukrainian National Guard” had published a video last Friday of the sniping operation, accompanied by a statement that said: “As dusk falls, the snipers of the National Guard Special Forces units begin to hunt, which is a very fast and accurate action that one of them did last night,” referring to the Ukrainian sniper.

The Office of Strategic Communications, known as StratCom, also transmitted the video to the command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on Sunday, with a statement saying: “A Ukrainian sniper approached the world record for the second longest combat sniper shot (..) The occupier was eliminated by a precise shot of our special forces from A distance of 2710 meters, a distance that now ranks third in the world.” After the Armed Forces Command confirmed the distance, it distributed the video to local and some foreign media, in which we see the sniper aiming at the Russian soldier and then killing him.

One dead from a distance of 3,540 meters

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces distributed, along with the video, an inventory of Russia’s losses in the war since it began on February 24 until today, November 14, in which the loss of life is 81,370 personnel, while the losses in equipment are 2,848 tanks, 5,748 armored combat vehicles, 1,839 artillery units, in addition to 393 Multiple launch missile system, 206 air defense systems, 278 warplanes, 261 helicopters, 1,509 drones, 399 cruise missiles, 16 warships, 4,316 motorized vehicles, fuel tankers and 160 units of special equipment.

As for the first and second place in neutralizing hostiles from a distance, the first is a Canadian sniper who fired his bullets in 2017 from a distance of 3,540 meters at an “ISIS” while performing a mission in Iraq, while the second place is for a British sniper who fired his rifle in 2009 from a distance of 2475 meters in Afghanistan.
