Podolyak assured that Zaluzhny and Zelensky's positions on the war are synchronized
The President's Office said that President Volodymyr Zelensky, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny and the entire military command have a synchronized position on the war against the Russian occupiers. It is discussed at the level of strategy and tactics of warfare.
This was stated by Mykhailo Podolyak, Advisor to the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, in an interview with the Ukrainian service of Deutsche Welle. He was commenting on Zaluzhny's resonant article for The Economist that the war in Ukraine is becoming a positional war.
Podolyak was asked what conclusions the Presidential Office had drawn in connection with this publication.
"Well, what are the conclusions here? You see, there is a synchronized position that is spoken at the level of strategy and tactics of warfare and is actually spoken at the Headquarters meeting or at the military cabinet by the president, the commander-in-chief, and, accordingly, by certain members of the military cabinet. In my opinion, Mr. Zaluzhny's publication itself emphasized that if we do not want a protracted war in Eastern Europe, which will be as destructive as possible for Ukraine - and for Russia, too, of course - we need to change the approach to supplying the Ukrainian army," he said.
The OP advisor noted that it is now clear that in order for Ukraine to gain an advantage in this war, it is necessary not to increase the volume of certain types of weapons but to increase the high-tech component.
According to him, the war against Russia is now at the point of no return, and Russia is also aware of this. We need a victory so that this conflict is not frozen and Ukraine can preserve its statehood and subjectivity.
"Therefore, for the 24th year and at the end of the 23rd year, we have a very clear understanding of what is needed: first, to slightly adjust the tactics to take into account the resources that Russia is spending. Secondly, we need to adjust the strategy to take into account the remaining dominant advantages that Russia has so that these advantages are eliminated. Third, we need to invest in the industries I mentioned, which we need to develop dramatically to gain a technological advantage. And the fourth is a sharp increase in pressure due to the technological component of this war on certain military orders in Russia," Podolyak said.
As a reminder, Valeriy Zaluzhny said in an article for The Economist that the war in Ukraine is now becoming a positional war and that this development is beneficial for the aggressor country, Russia. In order to defeat the enemy, our country needs not only weapons, missiles and shells provided by our partners but also military technologies. Read the full translation of the article here.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky commented on this resonant article written for The Economist by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny. According to the head of state, the situation on the battlefield is not really a stalemate.
Subsequently, the American newspaper The New York Times published an article that allegedly sheds light on the rift between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and the military leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, represented by General Valeriy Zaluzhny.
The author of this scandalous article was Andrew Kramer, an editor of The New York Times in Kyiv who previously worked in Moscow. Earlier, he was known for calling Azov soldiers "Nazis" and lying about the "civil war" in Donbas.
As reported by OBOZ.UA:
- Russians have spread a fake appeal by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny. In it, the general allegedly criticizes President Volodymyr Zelensky, calls on Ukrainians to protest in city squares, and tells the military not to obey "criminal orders" from their commanders.
- The OP responded to this fake spread by the Russian Federation, noting that its appearance testifies to the low intellectual level of Russians.
