Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has fired two generals for alleged “traitors”.
“Regarding antiheroes. Now I don’t have time to deal with all the traitors. But little by little they will all be punished,” the leader said in his nightly national address on Thursday, the 36th day of Russia’s invasion of the country.
“That is why the ex-chief of the Main Internal Security Department of the Security Service of Ukraine Naumov Andriy Olehovych and the former head of the Office of the Security Service of Ukraine in the Kherson region Kryvoruchko Serhiy Oleksandrovych are no longer generals,” he said.
“Soldiers among the senior officers who have not decided where their homeland is, who violate the military oath of allegiance to the Ukrainian people in relation to the protection of our state, its freedom and independence, will inevitably be deprived of their high military ranks. Random generals don’t belong here!”
It was unclear what the former generals did to get stripped of their ranks.
Naumov is believed to have fled Ukraine just before the Russian invasion began on February 24, while Kryvoruchko’s Kherson region was among the first areas to fall to Russian forces and put up little resistance, Wall Street reported Journal.
