Vladimir Putin proved himself a deadly killer today as video emerged of the Russian President testing a sniper rifle.
The Kremlin strongman hit the head, liver and abdomen of a static target at 1968 feet as he took to the ranges on Wednesday at the at the Patriot park in Moscow region, the Daily Mail reported.
Three of his five shots were accurate enough to kill with the Kalashnikov-designed Chukavin sniper's rifle known as the SVCh-308.
The other two missed the target.
Footage shows Putin shooting in his suit and tie while sitting at a desk at a Patriot Park firing range in Moscow region.
He showcased his sniper skills as he blasted Britain over the latest claims that he poisoned his enemies in Salisbury.
His spokesman dismissed as absurd claims that Putin had ordered the assassination of a part-time model with rat poison in a Salisbury restaurant.
Anna Shapiro, the alleged victim of the attack, said: "I was targeted by Putin's henchmen.
"They want me dead as I oppose Putin and have turned my back on my country."
Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: "I don't think there is any sense in commenting on such reports."
He told journalists: "The absurdity of the most part of information coming from Salisbury is evident."
The sniper rifle is made by Kalashnikov Concern which was created with the merger in 2013 in a merger of two Soviet-era plants – Izhmash and Izhevsk Mechanical Plant.
