Ukrainian authorities said that Major-General Oleg Mityaev, 47, died in the storming of Mariupol which has been under heavy siege by Russian troops. The general reportedly died along with seven members of an elite SWAT team in another major knock to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
A picture of his body was released by the Ukrainian Interior Ministry adviser Anton Gerashchenko.
Mityaev is the fourth Russian general to die in the war, according to Kyiv.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky reported the death of another Russian general on Tuesday evening but did not name him.
The death of a Russian spy captain during a “top secret” operation was also reported yesterday, meaning that President Putin has now lost a total of 13 commanders since the invasion began on February 24.
GRU military intelligence spy Captain Alexey Glushchak, 31, also died in the brutal fighting at Mariupol but details of his death have not been disclosed.
The GRU was behind the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal with Novichok in Salisbury.
The high-profile military losses come as opposition to the invasion is growing among Russian people.
Widespread protests were held this weekend with thousands of Russians taking to the streets across the country to oppose Russia’s war in Ukraine.
