- The Russian general who said the war would take hours is killed in Ukraine
EKO HOT BLOG reports that a seventh Russian general has been killed on the battlefield in Ukraine, according to western officials.
Lt Gen Yakov Rezantsev, 48, was killed in an airstrike in the southern city of Kherson, which Ukrainian troops are poised to take back from Vladimir Putin’s forces.
On the fourth day of the invasion, Lt Gen Yakov told Russian soldiers that they could achieve victory in a matter of hours, according to intercepted communications shared by Ukraine.
Western officials say Rezantsev is the seventh general and second lieutenant general to die in the war.
Senior officers are thought to have been placed closer and closer to the frontline as Russian troops suffer heavy losses and a serious drop in morale.
Rezantsev was killed at the Chornobaivka airbase near Kherson, which Russia was using as a command post, according to Ukrainian media.
It follows reports that a Russian brigade commander was run over by a tank driven by his own troops – angry at the scale of the casualties they had faced.
