President Volodymyr Zelensky appointed Lieutenant General Yevhen Moysiuk as special commissioner on implementation of the international security agreements on Feb. 13.

Since 2021, Moysiuk has been the deputy of former Commander-in-Chief Valerii Zaluzhnyi, who was dismissed by Zelensky on Feb. 8. Before that, for two years, he was the commander of the Airborne Assault Forces.

Commenting on Moysiuk’s appointment, the president said in his evening address that there should be “a fundamentally new system of security relations with the world's major powers.”

Syrskyi: Ukraine shifts to defense to drain Russian troops
Ukrainian troops have switched from offensive to defensive posture and aim to exhaust advancing Russian forces, Commander-in-Chief Oleksandr Syrskyi said in an interview with German ZDF channel, published on Feb. 13.

“And every element of such relations must be fully implemented so that there are no mere declarations,” he added.

As a part of the military leadership reshuffle, Zelensky appointed a new commander-in-chief, head of the General Staff, and their deputies.

The president also announced four high-level military appointments, including the new commanders for the Ground Forces, Territorial Defense Forces, the Combined Forces, and the Airborne Assault Forces.

Earlier, Zelensky confirmed that he was planning to revamp Ukraine's political and military leadership, arguing that Ukraine needs "fresh energy."

Every Western decision is late by a year, says Zelensky.

Western partners have been deliberating key decisions on military assistance for Ukraine for "too long," President Volodymyr Zelensky said on May 20 in an interview with Reuters. The president described the delivery of aid, particularly badly needed air defense, as "one big step forward, but before that, two steps back."
