A high-level Russian military commander died in a Sevastopol hospital in Russia-occupied Crimea on Feb. 14 after being wounded, according to a statement by the local government of Dagestan, a republic of Russia.

The report doesn't specify where and when the injury occurred.

Colonel Magomedali Magomedzhanov, from Dagestan, was reportedly the deputy commander of the 18th Army and commander of the 61st separate Kirkenes Red Banner Marine Brigade of the Northern Fleet. He died on Feb. 14 during his fourth military operation.

Magomedzhanov previously served in Russia’s campaigns in the North Caucasus and Dagestan, before carrying out missions in Syria, according to the Head of the Republic of Dagestan Sergey Melikov.

The Russian 18th Combined Arms Army was formed in August last year “to free up more experienced units to fight on key axes" in Ukraine, according to the U.K. defense ministry.

The formation is likely "an amalgamation and uplift" of other units operating in Kherson Oblast, including the 22nd Army Corps, which normally forms the Russian garrison in occupied Crimea, the ministry said.
