"There will be no quick results": military expert on what to expect from the appointment of Syrskyi. Video

Military expert explains what to expect from Syrskyi's appointment

We should not expect any changes at the front immediately after the replacement of the commander-in-chief. The enemy will also not be able to take advantage of the pause in the assumption of the powers of the Commander-in-Chief because the entire "military machine" continues to work by inertia. It will take at least a few weeks before we can see any results.

This was stated by military expert Ivan Stupak in an interview with OBOZ.UA. He explained what and when to expect from the rotation in the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

According to the expert, we should not expect any changes in the course of hostilities in the near future.

"The President said that he would replace not only one person but a certain team. Therefore, we need to wait to see who will be appointed to key areas of work, who will be dismissed or what the rotation will be. We need to see who these people are. And then we can form a picture of what to expect. Now - today, tomorrow, this week - we should not expect any breakthrough at the front," Ivan Stupak explained.

The expert also explained that some pause associated with the assumption of powers by the new commander-in-chief is also not a threat. According to him, there will be no "malfunction" at the front  at least in the first week. And then the new commander-in-chief will try to show results as soon as possible to prove that he was appointed to this position for a reason.

"There are commanders on the ground, they are in charge. It's like a presidential election. While the president is changing, the state machine is working... So I don't think there will be any failures. As for dissatisfaction, yes, it can "malfunction." There may be dissatisfaction in social media, in the press. However, I don't think there will be any negative impact on the frontline in the first week. Later, most likely, Mr. Syrskyi will try to produce results as soon as possible to show that he was appointed to this position for a reason," Stupak said.

At the same time, the military expert noted that the resignation of Zaluzhnyi and the appointment of Syrskyi as commander-in-chief caused a lot of complaints from the military and the volunteer community.

"They are very unhappy with this. They say it is a few steps backwards. There is unverifiable information that Mr. Syrskyi is called a "butcher", that he is a champion of meat assaults. Therefore, many of those who are at the front assume that the number of casualties among our military will increase due to such assaults," Stupak explained.

The expert also noted that Oleksandr Syrskyi was appointed to his position precisely because of his loyalty to the Presidential Office and Zelenskyy himself.

"We should not expect such steps from him. Actions that contradict the general political line will not happen. All his articles, interviews, they will be fully coordinated with the Presidential Office or fully consistent with this policy," the expert believes.
