Zelensky dismissed the commander of the joint forces

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has sacked a high-ranking military officer, Major General Eduard Moskalev, from the post of commander of the joint forces.

Zelensky’s decree of February 26 has only one line: “Remove Eduard Mikhailovich Moskalev from the post of Commander of the Joint Forces.”

Zelenskiy mentioned Moskalev in a daily video message on February 24 while listing the military leaders he spoke with.

Moskalev has been appointed to this post since March 2022, shortly after the start of the full-scale Russian military invasion of Ukraine.

There is no mention of Moskalev’s dismissal on the official pages of the Joint Forces of Ukraine on Facebook or Twitter.

Previously, Eduard Moskalev was the commander of the strategic operational grouping of troops in Odessa and the first deputy commander of the troops of the operational command in Vostok.

Under the command of the Joint Forces Commander, who is appointed by the President of the country, there are military and law enforcement units that oppose Russia’s armed aggression in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions in Ukraine.

In recent weeks, Zelensky has repeatedly described as “difficult” the military situation in these two regions of Donbass, which Russian forces are trying to fully take over.

Russian troops have focused their efforts on the town of Bakhmut, where they are carrying out numerous attacks despite heavy casualties reported by Ukrainian and Western officials. On its Facebook page, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said that Russian troops carried out several unsuccessful attacks on February 26 in the Bakhmut region.
