Zelensky dismissed the commander of the Joint Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuriy Sodol, who was criticized by the Azov commander

President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky dismissed the commander United forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Lieutenant General Yuri Sodol. He announced this in his evening address.

Sodol's post was taken by Brigadier General Andrey Gnatov. Zelensky did not explain the reasons for the personnel changes.

Yuriy Sodol received the star of Hero of Ukraine in 2022. Since 2018, he has been the commander of the Ukrainian Marine Corps, and took the post of head of the Joint Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in February 2024.

The day before, June 23, the chief of staff of the Azov brigade, Bogdan Korotkevich, reported in his telegram channel that he had written a statement to the State Bureau of Investigation of Ukraine demanding to check the actions of an unnamed general, who, in his opinion, “killed more Ukrainian military personnel than any Russian general.”

Ukrayinska Pravda, citing its sources, wrote that Korotkevich’s statement refers to Sodol. The chief of staff of the Azov brigade adds that he has repeatedly tried unsuccessfully to draw attention to the general’s activities.

“I don’t give a damn that battalion commanders and brigade commanders are being judged for the loss of an observation post, but a general is not being judged for the loss of regions and dozens of cities and the loss of thousands of soldiers,” Korotkevich’s post says.

The new commander of the Joint Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Andrey Gnatov, led the defense of Nikolaev in 2022, and in the spring of 2023 – Bakhmut. In July 2022, Zelensky awarded him one of the country's highest military orders – the Cross of Military Merit.
