Ukrainian officials say a deputy commander of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet has been shot dead.
First Class Captain Andrey Paliy, 51, is the only senior naval officer believed to have been killed in the war in Ukraine, although Kyiv claims to have killed five army generals.
This comes as Russia claims to have attacked a training facility for foreign fighters killing more than 100 special forces personnel and non-Ukrainian mercenaries.
His death was apparently confirmed by a Russian friend, Konstantin Tsarenko, secretary of the publicity council of the Sevastopol Nakhimov Naval School, although it has not been officially acknowledged by Moscow.

One account states that he took part in raids by Russian marines near Mariupol.
However, the exact circumstances of his reported death are unknown.
Paliy was born in Kyiv and in 1993 refused to take the oath of office in the Ukrainian army, instead serving in Russia’s Northern Fleet.
Before that, he served on the Russian nuclear missile cruiser “Peter the Great”.

He also served as deputy director of the Russian naval academy in Sevastopol, in the annexed Crimea.
Ukrainian official Anton Gerashchenko announced Palsy’s death earlier today without giving further details.
Russia today again used hypersonic Kinzhal missiles on “military targets” in Ukraine, according to the Moscow Defense Ministry.
“A Kinzhal attack on a fuel and lubricant facility that supplies fuel to Ukrainian armored vehicles was carried out from the airspace over Crimea,” a statement said.
High-precision air-to-air missiles also hit a training center for “foreign mercenaries” near the village of Ovruch, in the Zhytomyr Region, the Russians claimed.
The type of missile attack is not specified.
“More than 100 service staff of [Ukraine’s] special operations forces and foreign mercenaries were killed”.
