Zelensky referred to Moskaryov in his daily speech on Friday, listing military commanders he spoke to. Moskaryov has been in this post since March 2022, shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine.

Neither the Joint Force’s Facebook nor Twitter accounts mentioned the dismissal.

Russian forces are making concerted efforts to capture the two eastern regions that make up Donbass, and Zelensky has variously described the military situation in the east in recent weeks as difficult and painful.
