Col Serhiy Kryvonos is running for president on his own initiative and this has nothing to do with the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) or the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the JFO command has said on Facebook.

"The political party ATO Servicemen has nominated Col Serhiy Kryvonos, the first deputy commander of the Armed Forces of Ukraine's JFO, as candidate for president. The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine's JFO reports that Col Kryvonos's participation in the election campaign is his own initiative and has nothing to do with the Joint Forces Operation or the Armed Forces of Ukraine as such," the statement reads.

At the party conference, Kryvonos said that he is on leave for the period of the election campaign.
