Hidden in plain site, Ukrainian soldiers lie camouflaged in the snow. Can you spot them?

This series of three photographs taken deep in the undergrowth will test your powers of observation, and whether you would be quick enough to see a hidden killer in the winter battlegrounds of Ukraine – before they saw you first.

The puzzles were posted by the National Guard of Ukraine on Tuesday. ‘Task for attention. Find the #sniper!’ the organisation wrote, challenging its followers to pin-point the well-hidden marksmen.

At least one sniper is hidden amongst the forest shrubbery in each photograph, but there could be more.

Snipers on the battleground use grass, trees and bushes for cover in order to blend in. They are also known for wearing ghillie suits – a type of camouflage clothing that is designed to resemble the background environment, such as foliage, snow or sand. The National Guard offered no clues to help.

In this case, the Ukrainian sharpshooters have used their snowy surroundings to blend it, making them difficult to spot even in these close-up images – and practically impossible to see across long distances.

Can you find the snipers in these three photographs?

There have been several reports of Ukrainian snipers carrying out extraordinary feats since Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of their country on February 24.

In November, Ukrainian special forces released extraordinary footage that claims to show an elite marksman hitting two Russian troops with just a single shot. Including the astonishing shot from distance, the sniper was able to take out five of Putin’s troops within just five minutes, they said at the time.

The shots are thought to have been taken at a distance of nearly 4,000ft – and were reported just days after a another Ukrainian marksman claimed to have executed the second-longest combat kill in history. 

The sharpshooter claimed to have hit a target at a distance of 2,710m – around 1.7miles – also in November.

MailOnline found four snipers across the three images. Did you find more? Scroll down for our guesses…

At least two snipers were spotted in this photograph aiming their rifles just to the right of the camera lens. But are there more hidden behind them in the dense snow-covered forest?
