Ukraine: Zelenskyy Calls for Broad Regime Change, Not Just Military

Source: Bloomberg

“President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said he’s considering broad leadership changes in Ukraine that go beyond the military, while acknowledging that his country’s war effort to turn back Russia’s invasion has stalled. Zelenskiy’s comments in an Italian television interview, while vague, marked the first time he has publicly responded to questions about the fate of Ukraine’s top army general, Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, since speculation about his imminent removal surfaced last week. He also hinted at concern about a possible return of Donald Trump to the White House after this year’s US presidential election. … Zelenskiy said he’s thinking about making the changes to bring about what he called a fresh beginning because everyone must pull together if Ukraine ‘wants to win,’ broadcaster RAI quoted him as saying in the interview.” (02/05/24)
