‘One of the world’s most wanted terrorists Samantha Lewthwaite who fought as part of a Ukrainian battalion has been killed by a volunteer sniper. The White Widow fought on the side of Ukrainian volunteer battalion Aidar as a sniper. She was killed by ‘a volunteer sniper who came to fight at the Lugansk front from Russia’.
The Russian sniper who killed the British terrorist now has a price of nearly one million dollars on his head from Ukrainian special services. The claim that Lewthwaite is dead could be an attempt by Russia to bolster its anti-terrorism credentials at a time when it is controversially massing armour and troops in Ukraine.
