4th Russian general reportedly killed in Ukraine
Another Russian general has been killed during fighting in Ukraine, reported British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), quoting Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Zelensky didn't name the officer, but an adviser to Ukraine's interior ministry said Maj Gen Oleg Mityaev had been killed by the far-right Azov Battalion.
Gen Mityaev was killed near Mariupol, said the BBC report, referring to Ukrainian media.
He is the fourth general reportedly killed, leading some to ask why such senior members of the Russian military are so close to the front-line.
Analysts believe that around 20 generals are leading Russian operations in Ukraine, meaning that if all the reported deaths are confirmed, one fifth of Russia's generals have been killed in action, the BBC report added.
