Division General Władimir Zawadski is indeed dead. The Voronezh region's governor officially confirmed the deputy commander of the 14th Army Corps's death. Alexander Gusev stated that the general died "at a combat post in the special operations zone". It is reported that the general was killed by a mine.

The initial news of Division General Zawadski's death surfaced on the evening of November 28 in the chat rooms of the Moscow School of Combined Forces Command.

Russian General killed by Mine

The military publication "Novorossiya" reports that the Division General died near the city of Izium in the Kharkiv region, roughly 31 miles from the front line. Other sources suggest that Zawadski could have been killed near the village of Krynki in the Kherson region, where in recent weeks, the Russian army was waging war against the Ukrainian Armed Forces bridgeheads along the left bank of the Dnieper.

"Division General Władimir Zawadski, the deputy commander of the 14th Army Corps, has died in Ukraine," announced the governor of the Voronezh region, Alexander Gusev. He reported the general's death via his Telegram channel, stating, "Zawadski died at a combat post in the special operations zone", without specifying the circumstances of his death.

Seventh General Killed in Ukraine

Zawadski is the seventh general to die since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The Russian language BBC news outlet points out that four Russian generals - Andrey Sukhoveckiy, Vladimir Frolov, Kanamat Botashev, and Roman Kutuzov - were killed in the first four months of the conflict.

Zawadski graduated from the Moscow Command School in 2000, and before that, in 1995, from the Suvorov Military School of the Ulyanovsk Guard. From 2018 to 2021, he led a tank division in the Moscow region. At the time of his death, he was serving as the deputy commander of the 14th Army Corps.
