Russian General Kutuzov Killed In Ukraine

Russian Major General Roman Kutuzov has been killed in eastern Ukraine, a Russian state media journalist said on Sunday.

Kutuzov’s death added to the string of high-ranking military casualties sustained by Moscow.

An estimated 11 Russian generals have died in the war.

The report, published on the Telegram messaging app by state television reporter Alexander Sladkov, did not say precisely when and where Kutuzov was killed.

There was no immediate comment from the Russian defence ministry.

Russian forces have intensified attacks to capture Sievierodonetsk, a key city in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region that Moscow is targeting after failing to take the capital Kyiv early in the war.

Russia already classifies military deaths as state secrets even in times of peace and has not updated its official casualty figures.

In March 25, Russia admitted that 1,351 soldiers had been killed since the start of its military campaign on Feb. 24.

Britain’s defence ministry said on Monday that Russia appeared to have suffered significant losses amongst mid- and junior-ranking officers in Ukraine.
