French-Canadian Sniper Shuts Down Claims He’s Been Killed With Taunting Message To Russians.
The French-Canadian sniper who went to fight in Ukraine has shut down claims he was killed, saying the false news is just a case of ‘trolling’.
The sniper, known only as ‘Wali’, recently left his wife and infant child behind in Canada to answer Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s call for foreign fighters to join the resistance.
In a Facebook post and a subsequent interview, Wali, who travelled to Ukraine to answer President Volodymyr Zelensky‘s calls for foreign fighters, confirmed he was alive and continuing with the fight.
In a Facebook post which included a picture of himself lying in a ball pit while holding a rifle, he wrote: ‘I am alive.’
‘The rumors that I died in the fight were completely ridiculous. The truth is we have taken the enemy’s ground in addition to causing him losses. Unfortunately, we also lost comrades, dead and injured.
‘The Russians are afraid of a close fight. They prefer to bomb, over and over again, destroying houses, such as frustrated thugs.’
He was in fact in “black-out mode,” laying low in Kyiv for security reasons. After his break, he even posted on social media, showing himself frolicking in a childrens’ ball bit with his infamous rifle.
Global News journalist Ashleigh Stewart from Canada managed to find the Canadian war hero and speak to him. She said he is “alive and well and resting in the Kyiv region before heading back to the front lines.”
