World’s deadliest sniper Wali joins Ukraine’s fight against Russia

The world’s deadliest sniper Wali has joined the Ukraine army to fight the President Vladimir Putin-led Russian invasion.

Sniper ‘Wali’ reached Ukraine on 4 March along with three ex-Canadian soldiers, after responding to the requests of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, according to reports.

“They were so happy to have us. It’s like we were friends right away,” Wali was quoted as saying by CBC.

“A week ago I was still programming stuff. Now I’m grabbing anti-tank missiles in a warehouse to kill real people… That’s my reality right now,” he told the media.

Who is Wali?

Wali is a 40-year-old Canadian soldier, who is married and has a one-year-old child. He is also a computer scientist, who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan (in Kandahar from 2009 to 2011).

Wali’s name was given to him by the Afghans and his real name still remains a mystery.

Why is so much in news?

Wali reportedly holds the record for the world’s longest confirmed kill of 3.5 kilometre when he shot down an ISIS fighter in Iraq’s Mosul.

Because of his ability to deliver 40 kills in a day, he has been feared and is the world’s deadliest sniper.

He has killed six Russian soldiers already, according to reports.
