Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky on Thursday announced the sacking of the commander-in-chief of the country’s armed forces.
The dismissal comes after weeks of speculation over General Valery Zaluzhny’s future after the pair became embroiled in a row over strategy.
Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrsky, who led the defence of Kyiv in 2022 as well as the assault on the eastern Kharkiv region later that year, will take over as Commander-in-Chief.
