Zelenskyy’s move was announced as he met Defence Minister Rustem Umerov and coincided with debate over the conduct of the 20-month-long war against Russia, with questions over how quickly a counteroffensive in the east and south is proceeding.
"In today’s meeting with Defence Minister Umerov, priorities were set,” Zelenskyy said in his nightly video address. "There is little time left to wait for results. Quick action is needed for forthcoming changes.”
Zelenskyy said he had replaced Major-General Tetiana Ostashchenko as commander of the Armed Forces Medical Forces.
Ostashchenko was replaced by Major-General Anatoly Kazmirchuk, head of a military clinic in Kyiv.
