7th Russian general killed in Ukraine
Ukraine's defence ministry said that another Russian general, Lt Gen Yakov Rezantsev, was killed in a strike near the southern city of Kherson, reported British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
Rezantsev was the commander of Russia's 49th combined army.
A western official said he was the seventh general to die in Ukraine, and the second lieutenant general – the highest rank officer reportedly killed, said BBC.
It is thought that low morale among Russian troops has forced senior officers closer to the front line.
In a conversation intercepted by the Ukrainian military, a Russian soldier complained that Rezantsev had claimed the war would be over within hours, just four days after it began, said the report.
