President Volodymyr Zelenskyy apparently had «good reasons» for changing the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and the military’s duty is to obey orders.

This was stated by the current Commander-in-Chief, Colonel-General of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Oleksandr Syrskyi.

Syrskyi’s appointment as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces followed the resignation of General Valeriy Zaluzhnyi. An Ukrinform journalist who interviewed Syrskyi asked him what caused such changes, as well as the reformatting of virtually the entire military leadership.

«The military has one duty – we don’t discuss orders, we execute them. So if the president of the country, the supreme commander-in-chief, had reasons for such a replacement, especially during the active phase of the war, it means that these reasons are good. Valeriy Fedorovich and I worked side by side in the most difficult times since the beginning of the Russian full-scale invasion, and even before. We worked as a team. I wish him success in his new and very responsible position», — said Syrsky.

He also assured that «all the knowledge and experience gained during a full-scale war in battles with superior enemy forces will be used to improve the effectiveness of our actions and maximize the damage to enemy strike groups«.

The Chief of Defence noted that the composition of the General Staff and other military command and control bodies will be renewed thanks to combat officers with extensive practical experience in combat operations, which they gained on the battlefields of this war.

Earlier, it was reported that President Zelenskyy had approved the candidacy of Zaluzhnyi for the post of Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Kingdom.
