Must Read

According to a video produced by Ukraine’s Office of Strategic Communications, a Ukrainian sniper kills a Russian soldier from 1.68 miles away.

If accurate, this would rank as the second-longest sniper kill in the history of warfare. The Office of Strategic Communications uploaded the 24-second clip on the social networking app Telegram, noting that “the occupier was eliminated by a precise shot of our special troops from a distance of 2,710 meters”—equivalent to 1.68 miles. The kill, according to the command of the armed forces, marks “a distance that currently ranks second in the world ranking. “No information was given as to where the video was shot or what weapon the Ukrainian sniper used to make the shot. Currently, an unnamed Canadian Special Forces soldier of Joint Task Force 2 holds the record for the longest sniper kill, taking out an ISIS militant in 2017 from a distance of 3,540 meters (2.2 miles). He utilized a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle and.50 BMG ammo, albeit the precise location of the hit was kept a secret.
