Ukraine says its forces have killed yet another Russian general, Maj. Gen. Andrei Simonov.
Simonov was said to have been killed in an attack on a Russian command post near the city of Izyum.
A Ukrainian official said Simonov commanded electric-warfare units.
Russia is said to have lost another general in Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine, the Kyiv Post reported Sunday.
A Ukrainian official said Maj. Gen. Andrei Simonov was killed near the city of Izyum in the Kharkiv region, which is occupied by Russian forces.
The Ukrainian military previously acknowledged attacking what it said was a field command post of the Russian 2nd Army on Saturday, saying the attack hit more than 30 Russian armored vehicles, including tanks, according to the paper.
The Kyiv Post cited President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's military advisor Oleksiy Arestovych as saying the general was among 100 Russian soldiers killed in the attack.
The claims by the Ukrainian authorities haven't been independently verified, and Russia hasn't confirmed Simonov's death.
The Ukrainian government advisor Anton Gerashchenko said on his Telegram account that Simonov was a senior commander of electronic warfare.
His death would make him the 10th Russian general said to have died in Ukraine, according to a count by the Kyiv Post.
Russia has suffered heavy losses since it invaded Ukraine on February 24, losing generals and commanders.
NATO estimates that Russia has lost up to 15,000 troops during the war, while Ukraine claims to have killed nearly 20,000.
Russia hasn't updated its official death toll in Ukraine since March 25, when it acknowledged 1,351 of its troops had been killed.
