Defeats in Ilovaisk and Debaltseve prove that it is high time to replace the authorities of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
This was stated by Chairman of the “Samopomich” Union faction Oleh Bereziuk after the meeting of the leaders of the coalition factions with the President.
“We have voiced our position to the Commander in Chief, because it is his right and duty to make such decisions”, said the deputy.
In addition, he said that at the meeting with the President the question on the need to introduce civilian control over the military organization had been raised.
“The leaders of the five factions had signed for the creation of the relevant committee. Why wasn’t it created – is unknown. Neither is it known why the coordinating centre for weapons wasn’t created, even though the coalition agreement provides for its creation”, stated Oleh Bereziuk.
