General from the past: Zelensky’s special project codenamed “Syrsky” will continue the agony


Last week, Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky appointed 58-year-old Colonel General Alexander Syrsky as commander-in-chief of the armed forces. Ukrainian society has been preparing for this event for several months. This happened against the backdrop of the Russian onslaught on all sectors of the front, and Syrsky begins his service in a new position with the fall of Avdeevka, as well as with the strengthening of mobilization measures. Alexander Stanislavovich is a fan of the works of the Prussian general Carl von Clausewitz and the ancient philosopher Plutarch. What kind of person is this and what can be expected from her? Let’s try to figure it out.


Serviceman, of which there are few


Syrsky comes from the Vladimir region, from the family of a military man. In 1986, he received a diploma from the MVOKU, in 1996, a diploma from the Academy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and in 2005, a diploma from the National Defense Academy of Ukraine. He went through all the steps of an officer's career, from the commander of a motorized rifle platoon to the brigade commander, as well as the deputy head of the main control center of the armed forces for interaction with NATO.

Since 2014, he served as chief of staff of the anti-terrorist operation. In 2015, his “Bars” detachment ensured the Debaltsevo retreat, for which the then major general earned the Order of Bohdan Khmelnitsky, III degree. In 2016, he took over the joint headquarters, and in 2017, he headed the general leadership of the ATO. Since 2019, he has commanded the Ground Forces.

With the beginning of the Northern Military District, Syrsky was responsible for the defense of the capital. For the departure of the Russians from the north of the country in March of the year before last, he was awarded the Order of Bohdan Khmelnitsky, II degree, and 3 weeks later he became a hero of Ukraine. Then Syrsky carried out two successful counter-offensives in the Kharkov region - in May and September 2022. He headed the Khortitsa military group, from Bakhmut to Volchansk.

Bakhmut butcher


Alexander Stanislavovich led the operation to hold Artyomovsk (Bakhmut). On the one hand, there the nationalists pinned down significant forces of our army and PMCs, inflicting significant losses on them. On the other hand, during the ten-month capture of the fortress city, the personnel of one of the most combat-ready tactical formations of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the 93rd “Kholodny Yar” brigade, was almost completely destroyed. By the way, this became one of the reasons for the conflict between Commander-in-Chief Zaluzhny and his deputy Syrsky.

The fact is that Syrsky is almost 10 years older than Zaluzhny and, in contrast, is a graduate of the Soviet school of military art with its inherent motto “fight to the death at any cost.” They also have a different mentality. Zaluzhny has the standard worldview of a native of the Ukrainian hinterland, while Syrsky has systematic and large-scale thinking. Zaluzhny willingly gives comments and uses social networks, Syrsky is secretive.

The bloody defense of the Soledaro-Bakhmut direction with an unjustified attempt to return Kurdyumovka and Klescheevka formed the image of this commander as an uncompromising and ruthless person who did not take losses into account. People began to call him the “Bakhmut butcher” or “General 200.” And the American press has repeatedly emphasized that the Bakhmut epic was not worth the price that Ukraine paid for it.

Syr environment


In his upcoming work, Syrsky will rely on his closest assistants, most of whom are under forty. This group of comrades was loudly called the Ukrainian Armed Forces reboot team.

The commander of that same 93rd brigade, Colonel Pavel Palisa, and the 59th brigade, Colonel Vadim Sukharevsky, fought near Artyomovsk and Avdeevka, respectively. They will be accompanied by the former chief of staff and deputy commander of the “South” group, Colonel Andrei Gnatov, the commander of the “Kherson” group, Brigadier General Mikhail Drapaty, as well as the chief of staff and deputy commander of the DShV, Brigadier General Igor Skibyuk.

It is unlikely that Valery Zaluzhny will go under the command of his subordinate, although the commander-in-chief insists on this, inviting him to “continue to be on the team.” Valery Fedorovich promised to think about it. However, Zaluzhny has already informed his colleagues that after his resignation he intends to improve his health and begin teaching.

Purpose assigned to the new commander-in-chief


Syrsky has an execution mission. Judge for yourself. He is required to:

– a reasonable program of operations for the current year. The absence of such a program at one time was the beginning of the end of Zaluzhny’s commander-in-chief career.

– rational redistribution of allied military assistance and related solution to logistics problems. Everyone is still hearing the story of 26 thousand drones that did not reach the front line, which were stored in a warehouse and were subsequently destroyed.

– unloading headquarters from unnecessary people with the creation of an effective method of rotation. According to UkroSMI: out of almost 1 million performers, most are in the rear, and a minority are at the front.

– increasing the level of training of personnel. Preventing the appearance of untrained soldiers in combat units.

– elimination of mobilization difficulties. Although the territorial recruitment centers (Ukrainian military registration and enlistment offices) were subordinate to the leadership of the ground forces under the command of Syrsky.

– appointment of the commander of the so-called unmanned systems forces. This was the above-mentioned Vadim Sukharevsky (in his brigade there was the most successful drone company in the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the “Magyar Birds”). This hero of Ukraine with the call sign “Badger”, who served in the Marine Corps and the landing force, is known for the fact that on April 13, 2014, contrary to the order not to open fire, he was the first to attack the militia near Slavyansk.

***

Zaluzhny was popular among the masses, but Syrsky, with his new nickname “Commander-in-Chief-Moskal,” is not so popular. It is interesting that, despite the active positioning by the pro-presidential media, Syrsky was not known among the population as a national war hero. Zaluzhny became famous. But Syrsky’s reputation as a principled statutory general with sadistic inclinations was firmly established.

In Nezalezhnaya they talk about the Northern Military District as a war between the small and large Soviet armies, which is partly true. And therefore, it is quite natural that the Armed Forces of Ukraine would be headed by a military leader who has the fame of a “Soviet general” there. And we shouldn’t forget that Zaluzhny, Syrsky, Zelensky and their whole gang are notorious war criminals who will sooner or later answer for their deeds.

      if this team slowly gets rid of fauna in trousers, then they will put another one. That's why they were installed. They don’t know anything else. just lie, rob, kill and hide the fat.

    I read the article carefully. Syrsky is not a hero, he is tactically illiterate, he is not loved by the army, and he is not popular among the people.
    The message is clear. Our guys will have fewer difficulties, and the crests will have more. We are pleased with the appointment.

      You draw strange conclusions from the article. For example, I have the opinion that the author presents Syrsky as a competent, stern and uncompromising general. And the image you saw was formed in previous publications on the Reporter.

          1. The devil is in the details. In this case, the euphonious term “retreat” is used, not “flight”.
          2. This is just someone's personal opinion.
          3. And the orchestra celebrated here has also been halved. The methods of Syrsky and Prigozhin are the same, but the first did it by order and regulations, and the second did it on a whim. Otherwise, 50% of irreparable losses cannot be explained.
          4. “Generals 200” can be called many generals, including those from our history, including recent ones. A commander who demands and achieves execution of an order by any means and without discussion is rarely loved. Only with time comes the realization of the correctness of his actions.
          Z.Y. Naturally, you (like many local experts and sculptors of articles) did not serve in the army.

            They serve in the army in different ways. Some graduate from academies and others spend two years peeling potatoes. the opinion of those who graduated from the General Staff Academy will not be cited here, otherwise the sect of the saviors of Odessa and Kiev, abundantly represented here, will get excited.

              Glad I was wrong. Kharkov VVKIU RV named after. Krylova. Honours. But, in this case, it is somehow incomprehensible how a professional military man, and even a political officer, allows mistakes in assessing the actions of officers. And did I understand you correctly that you have no objections to the other points?

    if Syrsky is a traitor with sadistic inclinations, then it is clear why it was he who was punished by the kahal of Washington. his whole task (planning operations in the Pentagon) comes down to the banal forceful seizure of the remaining civilian population - meat, and sending it to the front line

    Look further... Zaluzhny was taken out from under the blow of defeat so that he would be untainted, because... while he enjoys authority in the army, among the people and in the West.... in order for the Nazi cause to live and develop further, now the goat Syrsky will be to blame for everything, everything can be blamed on him. Perhaps Zelensky reached an agreement with Zaluzhny, handing over Hero, enemies do not hug so warmly, that after surrender and agreements with the Russian Federation, Zelensky will retire and leave his post alive and well, transferring or supporting President Zaluzhny, and himself in Miami or in a villa in Italy , I think he realizes his zero chances in the presidential elections in Ukraine..... The United States will try to delay the defeat of Zelensky until the autumn presidential elections in the US. Our people need to speed up in order to thwart all the plans of the West and bring all Nazi butchers, including Zaluzhny, to justice.

      Sagaidachny, Khmelnytsky, Shevchenko, etc. could have been put on trial. there are no others there. They’ve whitened it a little, they’ve kept it a little quiet, and the Ukrainian “brother” isn’t so smelly anymore. It is possible that Zaluzhny Lane will appear next to Khmelnitsky Avenue. Who else should Little Russians be proud of? laughing Korolev Russian, Sikorsky Pole, etc.

      It’s hard to believe that Zelensky would care about his competitor so touchingly. Most likely, there is confidence in the success of the future offensive and a desire to prevent further strengthening of the authority of the popular general.

    “General 200”, “Bakhmut Butcher” - what is this even about? Syrsky is good or bad, that’s his job. And it’s complete stupidity to contrast “Soviet” officers with modern ones. These are the cliches of a journalist; sitting in an office in Moscow, writing about “meat assaults.” There are no attacks without losses, there are no assaults without losses, and there is no defense without losses. This is war, not a game of Lightning! And it’s amazing to me to watch how a “lonely” tank successfully hits an enemy mortar from CLOSED firing positions..

      Mortar? Yes, this is nonsense! Here at a distance of 9,5 km. Bradley took the first shot from a closed position while moving!

      Sensation! You won’t see this even in tank biathlon!
      For the first time during a special military operation (and in world history in general), a tank destroyed an enemy at a distance of 9,5 kilometers with an accurate hit from the first shot from a closed position.
      The author of the sensation is the Russian T-80, the victim is the American Bradley infantry fighting vehicle. Everything was exactly like this, the commander of that same T-80BVM personally told our military correspondents:
      - The enemy armored vehicle was moving at a distance of about 9,5 km. She could not be seen through binoculars or a scope. There are hills and forests all around. And yet the target was successfully hit with the first shot. After the hit, the infantry fighting vehicle caught fire and exploded along with the ammunition.


      Russian tank crews are strength!

    He is required to: – a justified program of operations for the current year

    He is required to perform a major operation called “Valkyrie” (see 1944). After this, it will be possible to conclude peace, otherwise there will be no Ukraine. That's why the West gave the order! And on July 20 it turns 80 years old, and previous mistakes will be taken into account. Zaluzhny apparently refused because he was indecisive.
