Kiev's Mayor Warns Zelenskyy, Firing Zaluzhny Threatens Unity of Ukraine

Vitaly Klitschko, the mayor of Kiev, today opposed President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s drive to dump the popular UAF Commander-in-Chief Valery Zaluzhny. He posted on Telegram that Ukraine has been “discussing and anxiously waiting for the outcome of the situation…. In many ways, it was thanks to Zaluzhny that Ukrainians truly believed in our Armed Forces, which enjoy the greatest trust today.… Unfortunately, today is the moment when politics can prevail over common sense and the interests of the state.”

Rather, he called for the government to actually understand “the seriousness of the steps it is taking now and the full extent of its responsibility.” Kiev must maintain “combat readiness and coherence of the army” as well as the “unity of society.”
