Yakov Rezantsev, another Russian Lieutenant-General, has been slain in Ukraine.
According to the BBC, Rezantsev was killed in a strike on the Chornobaivka airbase in the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson on Friday, according to Ukraine’s defense ministry.
The Lieutenant-General commanded Russia’s unified army’s 49th division.
Rezantsev was a second lieutenant general, the highest-ranking officer killed since the Russian-Ukraine conflict began last month.
Last Monday, Ukraine announced that Russian Lieutenant-General Andrei Mordvichev was killed during an attack on an airbase in the country’s south.
The war between Russia and Ukraine began in February.
Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered the invasion of Ukraine over disagreements on some political issues.
As of today, several casualties have already been recorded.
