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. #ukraine #war #ukrainearmy Read more here: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2024/02/08/russia-ukraine-zelensky-putin-war-latest-news5/ Subscribe to The Telegraph with our special offer: just £1 for 3 months.
