Will be sent to combat military units: the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine announced a 60% reduction in staff

This will make it possible to rotate units

As part of the reform of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, its staff is to be reduced by 60%. The dismissed personnel will be used to staff the operational and tactical levels of command and control, as well as combat military units.

This statement was made by Brigadier General Yevhen Ostrianskyi, Head of the Main Department of Defense Planning of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, during a briefing on Friday, May 24. This was reported by the press service of the department.

According to him, 25% of the units will be disbanded, and another 35% will be transferred to other branches and types of the Armed Forces.

Ostrianskyi noted that a functional review of the General Staff led to the decision to optimize the staffing of some structural units and military command and control bodies. The general added that the process includes disbanding certain military organizational structures, creating new ones, and optimizing existing ones.

According to him, these measures will eliminate duplication of functions and reduce the number of staff by 60%. Ostrianskyi also emphasized that the dismissed personnel will be used to supplement the operational and tactical command and control bodies, as well as combat military units.

"This will allow us to rotate units that have been performing combat missions in the combat zone for a long time. We understand that in times of war, the structures that directly manage the troop groups should be strengthened first and foremost," the general explained.
