A Ukrainian sniper claims to be a world record holder after picking off a Russian soldier from 2.36 miles away with a custom rifle called ‘Lord of the Horizon’.
The unnamed soldier, who serves in Ukraine’s security service (SBU), reportedly managed to beat the previous record of 2.2 miles, made by a Canadian special operations sniper in Iraq in 2017.
Video reportedly shows the target falling several seconds after the SBU sniper took the shot.
A line of three stationary Russian soldiers quickly becomes a line of two as the bullet takes the soldier out at the unknown location.
