Major General Roman Kutuzov was killed, according to the story, which was published on the Telegram messaging app by state television reporter Alexander Sladkov.
Russian soldiers have stepped up their attacks on Sievierodonetsk, a crucial city in Ukraine's eastern Donbas area that Moscow is pursuing after failing to capture Kyiv early in the conflict.
Even in times of peace, Russia treats military deaths as state secrets, and it hasn't updated its official fatality counts in Ukraine since March 25, when it reported 1,351 Russian soldiers had died since the start of the military campaign on Feb. 24.
Russia claims to be conducting a "special military operation" to demilitarize Ukraine and remove nationalists who pose a threat to the country's Russian-speaking population. Although, these assertions are dismissed by both Ukraine and Western countries as a justification to invade.
Russia appears to have sustained severe losses among mid- and junior-ranking officers in Ukraine, according to the British defense ministry.
