One of the world’s deadliest shooters has landed in Ukraine, promising to battle the Russians as a volunteer fighter.
Wali, as he is known, has already been to Iraq on his own to aid in the fight of the Islamic State.
However, after abandoning his wife and son in Canada, he has crossed the Ukrainian border and sworn to fight Putin’s soldiers.
Wali completed two missions in Afghanistan as a ‘lethal’ sniper with the Canadian Armed Forces in 2009 and 2011, and was a sniper with an astounding 3.5km kill distance in the same fighting regiment.
Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, stated last week that anyone interested in joining the Ukrainian fighters would be welcome.
Several years ago, the sniper fought alongside Kurds against ISIS in Syria, and he travelled to Ukraine because “I want to help them.”
That’s all there is to it.”
“I have to help because there are individuals here who are being bombed simply because they want to be European and not Russian,” he continued.
He and other veterans have taken refuge at an abandoned house in Ukraine since crossing the border, awaiting a meeting with Ukrainian authorities.
