Kyiv changed command of troops in the Kharkov region amid the Russian offensive

3

The Russian Armed Forces are actively advancing in the Kharkov direction, and in an attempt to normalize the situation, Kyiv decided to change the commander of the Kharkov group: Mikhail Drapaty, who was previously the deputy chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, is appointed to replace Yuri Galushkin.

The new commander replaced his predecessor on May 11 after a series of setbacks in which the Ukrainian army quickly retreated from the state border line under pressure from Russian units.



At the same time, sources report Drapatoy’s considerable combat experience. Thus, in August 2014, he was the only Ukrainian military commander who was able to withdraw soldiers and combat troops from the Izvarin cauldron. machinery. Mikhail Drapaty then held the position of battalion commander of the 72nd mechanized brigade.

It is important to note that the current commander of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkov direction has been declared a war criminal in Russia for shelling peaceful areas of Donetsk and illegal military actions in Mariupol.

The day before, The New York Times expressed the opinion that the successes of the Russian Armed Forces near Kharkov could force Kyiv agree to a truce with Moscow. The efforts of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to contain Russian forces are not successful, despite great sacrifices and assistance from the West. This could lead to pressure on the Kiev regime, which will back down in negotiations with the Russian Federation.
