On Tuesday, September 26, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhnyi held a final conversation with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley.
Zaluzhnyi will resign from his post this week. This is stated in the message of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces on his Telegram channel.
Milley's successor, US General Charles Brown, was also present during the conversation.
"We discussed the situation at the front with our partners. I informed them about the progress of defensive and offensive operations. The situation is under control. Our soldiers did not allow the loss of any positions. In some areas, despite the enemy's fierce resistance, we continue to move forward," said Zaluzhnyi.
According to him, he also told his American colleagues about the main needs of the Ukrainian army - air defense equipment, artillery and ammunition.
"We agreed to continue working to strengthen the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the fight against Russian aggression," summarized the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.-
"A few months ago I noted that this offensive would be long, bloody and slow. And that's exactly what it is: long, bloody and slow, it's a very hard fight," General Mark Milley said in an interview with The Washington Post in August.-
Milley emphasized that for Ukraine, this struggle has become a matter of its existence. At the same time, for the United States, Europe, and the rest of the world, the war launched by Russia means "a direct challenge to the rules of the international order that have existed for 80 years since the end of World War II."
