Another top Russian General dies during mine explosion in Ukraine

The governor of Russia’s Voronezh region stated on Monday that a Russian general had died while deployed in Ukraine, making him the latest high-ranking Russian military figure to die during the 21-month operation.


According to Russian Telegram channels with army sources, he was killed at the end of November after stepping on a mine distant from the front lines, meaning it could have been a device set previously by Russian forces.


Moscow rarely speaks of its casualties in Ukraine, but it has recognized the deaths of many high-ranking officers.


“A piercing pain. Major General Vladimir Zavadsky, deputy commander of the 14th Army Corps of the Northern Fleet, died in the line of duty in a special operation zone,” Voronezh governor Alexander Gusev said on Telegram, using the Russian term for its offensive in Ukraine.


Gusev paid homage to Zavadsky, calling him “a courageous officer, a real general and a worthy man”.


He did not specify the circumstances of Zavadsky’s death.


The announcement comes as Russian troops are trying to seize Avdiivka, an industrial town in the eastern Donetsk region of Ukraine that has become one of the most contended points on the front line.
