The governor of Russia’s Voronezh region has confirmed the death of Major-General Vladimir Zavadsky in Ukraine. Zavadsky died at a combat post in the ‘special operation zone’, a term used by Russia to describe the war in Ukraine. Alexander Gusev, the governor, praised Zavadsky as a courageous officer and a worthy man.
Zavadsky’s death is the seventh of a major-general and the 12th of a senior officer since the war began. Meanwhile, Ukrainian authorities reported that their military successfully downed 10 out of 17 attack drones launched by Russia overnight. Three drones targeted infrastructure in Lviv region, causing minimal damage with no reported casualties.
Kyiv’s air force stated the drones were intercepted across “various regions”. Simultaneously, six S-300 missiles were reportedly launched at civilian targets in eastern Donetsk and southern Kherson. Russian officials claimed their forces neutralised at least 35 Ukrainian drones, foiling an attempt by the Kyiv regime to commit a terrorist attack with aerial drones.
The Russian Ministry of Defence said that “22 Ukrainian drones were destroyed and 13 others were intercepted over the Sea of Azov and Crimea”. In a separate statement, the ministry reported that four Ukrainian drones were shot down and two intercepted over the Sea of Azov in a new attack attempt by the Kyiv regime.
The Crimean Peninsula, annexed by Russia in 2014, serves as the headquarters for Russia’s Black Sea Fleet and a vital supply route for their forces in southern and eastern Ukraine. The region is frequently subject to attacks from Ukrainian forces.
