Russian Maj. Gen Vladimir Frolov dies amid ongoing hostilities in Ukraine

As the fighting in Ukraine shows no signs of abating comes news that yet another Russian general has lost his life amid the hostilities, according to The Hill.

Confirmation of the death of Maj. Gen. Vladimir Petrovich Frolov, the deputy commander of the 8th Army, came from the governor of St. Petersburg, the outlet further noted.

According to Russian media reports, the memory of the fallen military leader was honored in a Saturday ceremony in which Frolov was heralded as an example for others to follow.

“Today we say goodbye to a real hero. Vladimir Petrovich Frolov died a heroic death in battle with Ukrainian nationalists,” declared Gov. Alexander Beglov. “He sacrificed his life so that children, women and the elderly in the Donbas would no longer hear bomb explosions. To stop waiting for death and leaving home, to say goodbye as if it were the last time.”

Beglov called Frolov “[a] true patriot” and a “brave man” who “honestly and to the end fulfilled his military and human duty,” as the New York Post further noted.

Frolov is just one of several deaths of high-ranking Russian generals and other top military brass to occur since the invasion of Ukraine began in late February.

Less than a month ago, the killing of Col. Alexander Bespalov marked the ninth high-ranking member of President Vladimir Putin’s fighting forces to meet the same fate as Frolov, an indication of the surprising losses Russian troops have taken at the hands of the Ukrainian resistance.

Frolov’s death comes as Russia is reportedly preparing for a substantial repositioning of its offensive forces in the eastern part of Ukraine, a shift viewed by many as the result of the failure of Putin’s troops to capture the capital city of Kyiv.

As White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan recently explained, “All indications are that Russia will seek to surround and overwhelm Ukrainian forces in eastern Ukraine. We anticipate that Russian commanders are now executing the redeployment…to the region around the Donbas,” but what that will mean in terms of the ultimate trajectory of the conflict, only time will tell.
