A Russian local official has confirmed the death in action in Ukraine of Maj Gen Vladimir Zavadsky, reported by pro-Kremlin sources last week.

Voronezh Governor Alexander Gusev said Maj Gen Zavadsky, 45, died "in the line of duty" but gave no further details.

On Wednesday it was reported that he had killed by a mine, but there were conflicting reports about where this happened.

He is the seventh Russian general known to have died in the Ukraine conflict.
