According to Ukraine’s departing defense minister, the nation is bracing for a major Russian offensive later this month.
Oleksiy Reznikov stated at a news conference that not all Western weapons would have arrived by then but that Ukraine had sufficient stocks to repel Russian soldiers.
According to President Volodymyr Zelensky, forces are engaged in severe combat in the eastern cities of Bakhmut, Vuhledar, and Lyman.
Hours before to the announcement that he would be replaced as defense minister, Mr. Reznikov made these remarks.
He will be replaced, according to a Ukrainian legislator from Mr. Zelensky’s party, by military intelligence commander Kyrylo Budanov.
A number of corruption scandals have afflicted the defense ministry, which has led to the reorganization.
Media reports that several defense personnel are suspected of embezzling state funds have been refuted by Mr. Reznikov.
