Read the four most important news for the previous day in connection with the war in Ukraine. 1. Ukrainians kill eighth Russian general Another Russian general was killed in Ukraine, and his death was confirmed by Russia itself. This is Major General Vladimir Petrovich Frolov, who served as deputy commander of the 8th Army of the Southern Military District. Frolov’s death was confirmed by St. Petersburg Governor Alexander Beglov. It is not clear where Frolov was killed. This is the eighth Russian general killed since the beginning of the war. “Vladimir Petrovich Frolov died a heroic death in a fight against Ukrainian nationalists,” Beglov said in a traditional propaganda speech by Moscow. According to the BBC, it is unusual for high-ranking military officials to be present directly on the battlefield or in the immediate vicinity of the fighting, thus exposing themselves to increased danger. Several Western officials believe that some Russian generals are behaving in this way in order to gain some control over military operations in areas where their troops are unable to move forward.
