As violence between Russia and Ukraine continued, one of the world’s best shooters, ‘Wali,’ landed in the war-torn country earlier this week to battle Russian forces.
When Ukrainian President Zelenskyy called on foreigners to help the country’s struggle against Russia, Wali, a veteran of the Royal Canadian 22nd Regiment, said he felt “like a firefighter who hears the alarm ringing.”
Wali, according to sources, murdered six Russian soldiers in two days after arriving in Ukraine on Wednesday.
“I want to help them,” the legendary sniper remarked in a recent interview. That’s all there is to it. I feel compelled to assist since there are people here who are being targeted simply because they wish to be European rather than Russian.”
KILLS PER DAY: 40
Wali is regarded as one of the best snipers in the world, capable of delivering 40 kills in a single day. A decent sniper, on the other hand, obtains 5-6 kills every day on average, while a fantastic one gets 7-10.
Wali, a 40-year-old computer scientist from France, served in Afghanistan twice between 2009 and 2011. During his time in Afghanistan, he was given the moniker Wali, which means guardian in Arabic.
Wali and his wife have a baby son at home. While his father fights the war in Ukraine, the baby will turn one next week.
On February 24, Russia invaded Ukraine and launched a series of strikes across the country. The fighting has resulted in a catastrophic refugee crisis and the deaths of hundreds of civilians in Ukraine.
Meanwhile, Ukraine claims that over 12,000 Russian servicemen have died so far in the conflict.
