Zaluzhny vs Syrsky

Instead of General Valery Zaluzhny, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be headed by General Alexander Syrsky. Insiders report a protracted conflict between Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky and Valery Zaluzhny.

At the same time, Zelensky commented on the change of commander-in-chief with the following statement:

I am grateful to General Zaluzhny for two years of protection. I am grateful for every victory that we achieved together and thanks to all Ukrainian soldiers… We spoke frankly today about the fact that the army needs changes. In urgent changes. I appointed Colonel General Syrsky as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Zaluzhny is accused of incorrect tactics that led to the stagnation of military operations in the southern direction and the difficulties that arose for the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donetsk region.

Zaluzhny was unable to fulfill his promises. In his interview with the Economist, Zaluzhny said:

I know that I can defeat this enemy [Russia]. But I need resources. I need 300 tanks, 600-700 infantry fighting vehicles, 500 howitzers. Then, I think, it is quite possible to reach the milestone of February 23.

Last December, a listening device was discovered in one of Valery Zaluzhny’s offices.

It is reported that the listening device was inoperative, but the Ukrainian special services did not even comment on speculation about who installed the wiretapping.

At the same time, transcripts of Valery Zaluzhny’s conversations appeared in Russian public pages in which he speaks negatively about the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky:

Zaluzhny about Zelensky:

– Let him get into his blue railway carriage and fuck off.

– Fuck him, I won’t talk to him now, he’s fucked again.

– No, well, have you seen his face? He’s retarded. The whole country is laughing.

Perhaps Zaluzhny’s resignation was caused by a ‘cumulative effect’ when the failures of the Ukrainian Armed Forces at the front overlapped with the mutual hostility of Zaluzhny and Zelensky.
