The appointment of the first deputy minister of defense of Ukraine as the commander of the ground forces by Zelensky

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky appointed Alexander Pavliuk, the country’s deputy defense minister, as the commander of the army’s ground forces.

Previously, Alexander Sirsky worked in this position, who has now become the commander-in-chief of the army.

Mr. Zelensky has appointed 53-year-old General Pavlyuk as the commander of the army’s ground forces as part of the changes he has brought to the command of the Ukrainian armed forces.

In another change in the leadership of Ukraine’s military, Serhiy Nayef has been removed from the command of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and replaced by Yuri Sudol, who was in charge of the navy.
