The Washington Post reports:
Russian Maj. Gen. Vladimir Frolov of the 8th Army died in battle in Ukraine and was buried in Russia on Saturday, according to a statement from the governor of St. Petersburg.
The statement from Alexander Beglov offered no details of when or where Frolov was killed. As deputy commander of the 8th Army, Frolov commanded forces deployed to an area near Mariupol, the devastated port city that Russia appears on the verge of capturing.
Russian state media outlet Fontanka reported that Beglov claimed Frolov, whom he described as “a true patriot,” “fell the death of the brave.”
Russia admits that another general, Maj. Gen. Vladimir Frolov, has been killed in Ukraine.
The total number of slain Russian generals is now at least 8, a figure that experts say is shockingly high and is evidence of a deeply troubled military campaign. https://t.co/oVarWINt5B
