Quote from Zelenskyy: "The commander-in-chief has a carte blanche to make personnel changes in the army, in any of the headquarters, anywhere. All Ukrainian commanders have to know the front, to feel the front and its real needs, to really be close to the soldiers and the officers, and to be exactly the right people for achieving Ukraine’s goals.
