Espreso TV reported the information.

He commented on the Ukrainian Office of the President’s response to the article by the Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, in the Economist.

"In his piece for the Economist, Zaluzhnyi aimed to not only provide an overview of Ukraine's predicament but also to advocate for the Western nations, especially the United States, to offer effective support. This is a powerful signal that has worked to some extent. And no one from the Presidential Office, neither deputies nor the head, has the right to comment or adjust the position of the Commander-in-Chief in any way," Malomuzh said.

According to him, Zelenskyy and Zaluzhnyi should seek assessments of the frontline situation from Ukrainian citizens. The disputes between the President of Ukraine and the Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on these issues need to be resolved.

"Zaluzhnyi expressed his position. Zelenskyy can express his perspective or point out some inaccuracies or his strategic vision. But this format of disputes should be avoided at the level of the press or interviews. There should be a united position. These disagreements need to be resolved, and all comments by the Presidential Office, which has no authority to do so, should be limited," Malomuzh added.

  • On November 1, the Economist published Valeriy Zaluzhnyi's column for the first time since December 2022.

  • The Commander-in-Chief noted that the Russian war against Ukraine could enter a more dangerous phase and outlined priority directions for preventing this. Zaluzhnyi explained what is needed to break the stalemate in the war with Russia.  He also named 5 priorities that will prevent the war from turning into a positional war.

  • The Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces said that F-16 aircraft will be less effective than expected because Russia has strengthened its air defense.
