Zelensky doesn't plan to transfer Zaluzhny from post of Ukrainian army commander-in-chief

MOSCOW. Aug 24 (Interfax) - Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said he has no plans to transfer Ukrainian Armed Forces commander-in-chief Valeriy Zaluzhny from his current post.

"I am not planning to transfer commander-in-chief Zaluzhny to any other post. We are working as one team. It is very important that commanders are working on different tracks. We all know their surnames: both Zaluzhny, [Andriy] Kovalchuk and [Oleksandr] Syrsky. The team is working," Ukrainian media quoted Zelensky as saying at a press conference after the Crimea Platform summit.

When asked how he evaluates Zaluzhny's performance, Zelensky said that his assessment is high.

"The main assessment is that we are withstanding. It means that the assessment is high," he said.
