In some combat brigades, personnel changes were made among commanders in order to preserve the lives and health of the defenders, according to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Oleksandr Syrskyy.

He noted that he continues to work on the eastern front. According to him, the situation at the front remains difficult but under control.

"Within three days, it became quite clear why some brigades manage to deter enemy attacks and hold their positions while others do not, given the same manning levels, weapons and military equipment," said Gen Syrskyy.

Combat capabilities primarily depend on the brigade commander, his level of training, experience, and ability to make adequate and balanced decisions. The level of training and cohesion of the brigade headquarters is of great importance.

"That is why I have sent groups of specialists to certain brigades where there are problems with staff training to share their experience and provide assistance," the commander said.

Following the reports of the brigade commanders and their deputies, decisions were made to provide reserves, ammunition, drones and other equipment.

"In some cases, when a commander does not know the situation and his actions and commands directly threaten the lives and health of his subordinates, I am forced to make personnel decisions," Syrskyy said.

He commended the fighters of the 54th Brigade, who destroyed two columns of enemy armoured vehicles with accurate artillery fire combined with skilful mining. Syrskyy thanked the soldiers of the 25th Separate Airborne Brigade, 47th Separate Mechanised Brigade and 79th Separate Assault Brigade.

"I note as a positive development the replacement of one brigade on the front line after two years of continuous fighting and its relocation to the rear to restore combat capability," he added.
