Also, according to Zelenskyy, the participants of the meeting heard the reports of the AFU Commander-in-Chief Valeriy Zaluzhnyy, Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov, the AFU General Staff and Minister for Strategic Industries of Ukraine Oleksandr Kamyshyn.
As part of the Stavka, the military command reconciled its long-term contracts for the supply of ammunition and missiles.
As a reminder, on May 10, Syrsky reported that in certain sections of the front in the Bakhmut direction, Ukraine's defenders forced the invaders to retreat up to two kilometers.
He added that the Ukrainian soldiers benefited from the fact that in certain directions the defeated Wagnerian units were "reinforced" by the Russian command with much worse-trained Russian military personnel. However, the prerequisites for such "rotation" - are the result of previous efforts of Ukrainian troops in the Bakhmut direction.
