Written by Edda Bevilacqua

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy dismissed Yurii Sodol, the Commander of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Bohdan Krotevych, the Chief of Staff of the Azov Brigade, requested an investigation into Sodol, blaming him for massive losses in the army units. Zelenskyy announced, in his evening speech following a meeting with the Supreme Commander, Chief of the General Staff and the Minister of National Defense, that he would replace the Commander of the United Armed Forces, Yurii Sodol, with General Andrii Hnatov.

Bohdan Krotevych said that Sodol’s incompetent command led to the loss of a large part of Ukraine’s territory. He said, “In my opinion, he (through his decisions) killed more Ukrainian soldiers than any Russian general” and accused Sodol of war crimes. Krotevych says he is willing to accept personal consequences for his statements.
