“Priority Map”: New Ukrainian Army Commander’s plan to defeat Russia 

The new commander of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Oleksandr Syrsky, sets his main priorities in the war with Russia in hopes of rectifying two years of conflict.

On Thursday, Syrsky was appointed as the army commander, succeeding General Valeriy Zaluzhny, who was widely popular. The Ukrainian presidency deemed it necessary to make a change after two years of war, as the frontlines seemed stagnant.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky requested a “realistic” plan for 2024 from the new commander at a time when Kyiv expressed concerns about the fragmentation of Western support due to internal disagreements in the United States and the European Union.

Priorities Syrsky stated that one of his main priorities is to expand the use of unmanned weapon systems, such as drones and electronic warfare, to defeat Russian forces.

In a post on the Telegram application, he argued, “This technology is crucial in Ukraine’s struggle to break through Russian defense lines and liberate occupied territories.”

After assuming command of the army, he added, “Only by changing the means and methods of warfare and constantly improving them, will we be able to successfully move forward on this path.”

With a third year of war looming in Ukraine, Syrsky described rapid and effective supply to frontline forces as equally important, emphasizing that “the lives and health of soldiers have been and remain the most valuable asset of the Ukrainian army.”

German Army Chief Carsten Breuer met with newly appointed Ukrainian Army Commander Oleksandr Syrsky for talks in Kyiv regarding further German assistance.

Syrsky replaced Valeriy Zaluzhny on Thursday, a move that was highly anticipated by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
