Major General Vitaliy Gerasimov killed in fighting near Kharkiv, Ukraine.

A second Russian general was killed during fighting in Ukraine, Ukraine's Ministry of Defense said. Ukraine also claims to have killed four Colonels. It is believed that Senior military officials have to supervise the fighting in the field, because normal secured communications systems have broken down.

One source says a radio phone conversation between Gerasimov was intercepted by Ukrainian intelligence, which then did a drone strike on the General.

Maj. Gen. Vitaly Gerasimov, believed to be the first deputy commander of Russia's 41st army, was killed in battle Monday near Kharkiv, Ukrainian Armed Forces said. Several senior army officers were also wounded.

Gerasimov's death has not been confirmed by Russian officials or media. Last week, Ukrainian forces killed Russian Maj. Gen. Andrei Sukhovetsky – another top officer in the 41st Army – in combat, according to Ukrainian officials and Russian media.
