For much of the invasion of Ukraine, we’ve been hearing reports of just how boneheaded the Russian army has been.  In fact, the stories coming from the front lines are so inexorably pathetic that it has reshaped the global order, with the rest of the world no longer truly frightened of Moscow’s military.

But we need to give some credit to Ukraine as well, as their courage and determination has been a major factor in just how lopsided the conflict has been.

The latest testament to their talent comes amid reports that a Ukrainian sniper has now made one of history’s most impressive shots.

Ukraine has claimed one if its snipers shot a Russian soldier from 1.7 miles away in what could be the second longest combat kill ever recorded.

Footage allegedly shows the moment the soldier drops to the ground after the sharpshooter takes a shot from a distance of 8,891ft.

It’s like shooting someone on Westminster Bridge from the top of Battersea Power Station – the length of 26 Wembley football pitches.

Ukraine’s Armed Forces said: ‘The occupier was eliminated by a precise shot of our special forces from a distance of 2,710 metres (8,891ft) – a distance that now ranks second in the world ranking, confirmed by the command of the Armed Forces.’

The weapon used is an incredible feat of engineering.

Ukraine’s armed forces have been consistently pushing Russian forces back on the ground, and even went so far as to retake Kherson last week – an area that Russia claimed to have “annexed” via a sham referendum some weeks ago.
