Olena Bilozerska; Sniper of Ukrainian Volunteer Army
As fears of an invasion grow, a female Ukrainian sniper who has killed ten pro-Russian separatists has vowed to take on Putin’s troops. Olena Bilozerska, a battle-hardened veteran who has fought in the contested Donbas region of east Ukraine’s blown-up buildings and trenches, claims she is willing to do it all over again to protect her country. “If you pick up a weapon against my country, you’re a target,” she says. He might kill you or one of your comrades if you don’t take him out quickly enough. “I get angry at myself if I don’t shoot in time and the target hides. And if I hit the target, I get a sense of accomplishment.” Olena Bilozerska, 42, is a pro-Russian separatist who has ten confirmed kills.
