Russian General Is Killed in Ukraine as Airstrikes Intensify

KYIV, Ukraine—Ukraine killed a third Russian standard given that Moscow’s invasion commenced far more than two months ago, officers mentioned Friday, as Russia repositioned its beleaguered forces in the north of the state in what Western officials get worried is a prelude to a renewed assault on the capital.

Somewhere else, Russia’s military grappled for command more than territory it nominally captured. On Friday, Russian forces kidnapped the mayor of the occupied southern city of Melitopol who had refused to cooperate with them and ongoing to fly a Ukrainian flag in his office.
