The video, which first appeared on social media around November 11, has now been released by the Office of Strategic Communications of Ukraine. Telegram published. “An accurate shot by our special forces sniper eliminated the enemy from a distance of 2710 m – a distance that is now number two in the world ranking,” it says. Where the photo was taken and what weapon was used is unknown. But for this range it should be a rifle with a long range of a large caliber, e.g. Ukrainian Alligator Snipex act.

Because if the information is correct, it has unknown sniper he replaced Craig Harrison, who in November 2009 killed two Taliban in Afghanistan from a distance of 2,475 meters and fired the second-longest fatal shot of all time. The furthest target was achieved by a Canadian in Iraq in 2017, when he hit from a distance of 3450 meters.

The information cannot be verified, and some Twitter users dispute the footage: the time between the shot and the hit is too short, and the infrared telescopic sight no longer shows clear images at that distance, they complain. But the leadership of the Ukrainian army insists on the authenticity of the recording.

It is possible that the Ukrainian soldiers fired from the Snipex Alligator sniper rifle, which is of domestic production.
