Ukraine says fourth Russian general killed during battle for Mariupol

Ukraine says a fourth Russian general has been killed in the fighting.

Maj. Gen. Oleg Mityaev died Tuesday during the storming of Mariupol, says Ukrainian Interior Ministry adviser Anton Gerashchenko, who publishes a photo on Telegram of what he said was the dead officer.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky reported the death of a Russian general in his nighttime address but didn’t name him.

Mityaev, 46, commanded the 150th motorized rifle division and had fought in Syria, Gerashchenko says.

There is no confirmation of the death from Russia.
