Zaluzhnyi’s dismissal won’t affect Western aid – Stoltenberg


Should Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy ultimately decide to sack Commander-in-Chief Valerii Zaluzhnyi, it would not affect Western security assistance to Kyiv, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said at a press briefing on Feb. 7. 

In response to a question about the possible dismissal of Zaluzhnyi, Stoltenberg said that “this is a decision for Ukraine, not for NATO to assess.”

The official echoed a statement by Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, indicating that any changes in the Ukrainian leadership would not affect relationships with NATO and other international partners.

“We will continue to provide support; that’s what is important, and we will keep doing it,” Stoltenberg concluded.

On Feb. 4, Zelenskyy said he’s considering a major shakeup of the entire administrative apparatus of the Ukrainian state.
