Zaluzhny Fired

The rumor of his firing exploded on Moday, and I got banned for posting about it. Now MSM is widely reporting that he was actually let go in a meeting low-key by Zelensky who offered him another position but declined it. Now they’re reporting it’ll be officially announced sometime in the week.

So, what the FRICK is going on? Wasn’t this guy really popular? Was there internal drama? CNN seems to suggest that it’s over the counteroffensive failing, is there any rumors around that being the center of drama in the government? Why are they doing this it’s a super bad look, can’t they work around whatever issue has come up? Like, could you imagine in Woody was fired?

      CNN Newswire, which is their online service is pretty solid. It's the 24/7 Cable News network that gives the station a bad name.

      Those sources are 100% within Ukraine government, and they ain't going to be saying their names because they'd get fired. Washington Post, CNN, NYT, etc are reporting it so it's looking grim. Valery Zaluzhny is popular, and a potential presidential candidate as well? Can you imagine him replacing Zelenskyy?

          Bro, the original rumor got started because some Ukranian politician who was there said so on social media, and then Ukranian journalists got the info from inside sources — but, apparently, those sources were also giving them conflicting info. The rumor exploded in Ukranian media and the government put out a statement clearly denying it. But there’s highly-placed sources who are reporting to journalists that the dismissal definitely happened, who had been talked to as a replacement, when it happened and that they’re going to announce it soon. That’s why Western media is picking it up now, it seems solid, not just a random Russian disinfo bot hacking a Twitter.

    If (IF!) Zaluzhny gets fired it will not be because of the counteroffensive but because of the disagreements between him and Zelensky.

          It's definitely difficult. I just left, but had been living there for nearly the entire war. The ratio of my male friends that joined the fight vs those that are hiding out inside and not going outside is really bad. Most of my friends are programmers/IT, so maybe that has something to do with it. Fortunately, I personally don't know anyone that died (yet). Most Ukrainian men will donate, raise funds, post support online, and pretty much do anything else for the cause *except* serve, which really sucks. It makes me question if the country is really ready to make the sacrifices needed to build a nation.

                They're slowly taking Andkiivka, and the plan seems to be just bleed them dry then withdraw. The bigger issue is that the lack of ammo and man-power results in Ukraine in a very tenuous situation. USA may not give Ukraine any more damn ammo until after the 2024 election which may be too late since a handful of Republicans are blocking it.

                >They've already killed Prigzhozhin
                They didn't do shit to pringles anon. He was shot down, ahem his plane had a sudden explosive decompression, well inside Russian airspace. If they were capable of killing him in that location they would have killed literally any other Russian general or even Putin/Shoigu.

                Again we're talking "I can sneak a bomb onto the plane of whoever I want"/"I can sneak a Buk between Moscow and St Petersburg" level. It was Russia under Putin's orders 100%.

                No, it was the battle for Bakhmut that led to the Wagner rebellion, leading to Putin killing Priggy. There was debate whether it was worth it, and yes, it turns out it was. There was debate whether to simply withdraw or if they should bleed Russia dry or not.

                If they just withdrew then Pringles would still be alive. The best of Wagner's forces were killed, and many more were sent to Storm-Z battallions to die afterwards on Putin's orders.

            I’ve heard that mobilization in Ukraine is super tough, but it’s hard to tell the difference between legit info and Russian agitprop without actually being in Ukraine to see for one’s self.

            its Zelenskiy's fault for introducing populist measures at the start like a ridiculously high conscription age, easy ways to evade, "2 more weeks" messaging, lack of domestic production initiatives and lack of media control in wartime
            setting the country on a total war footing at the start when everyone was riled up would have been easier than now where people see it as ATO 2.0
            unironically makes me wish Russhits would attack Kyiv again (and fail) just so people wake up

            also i used to think the Zaluzhny thing was psyop fanfiction by russians (projecting wagner and/or gerasimov drama) but Zelenskiy cucking out of mobilization proposed by him makes me think theres some friction
            he is pretty competent, and he didn't send men to the slaughter in the counteroffensive when it was clear it wouldn't work

      MacArthur is the reason we have a massive unsinkable aircraft carrier parked next to China, show some respect. Japan could have wound up being a bitter enemy of the US forever, instead they're a close friend on China's doorstep, and we have MacArthur's choice of how to handle the occupation and reconstruction to thank for that.

      Douglas MacArthur is probably the best general America ever had.

            I know he was assassinated on Putin's orders after the Wagner rebellion. But the Battle of Bakhmut is tied to everything. After Wagner became a shell of its former self, they were no longer needed and Putin was going to put them under the DoD command. That led to the Wagner revolt, leading to his assassination.

            If Ukraine had orderly withdrew from Bakhmut, then Wagner would sweep in at full power, get to parade as heroes, and they'd still be fighting in the war.

      From what I have heard the disagreement between him and Zalensky was that he wanted to moobilize about 500k Ukrainians to which contrary to what vatniks propagandised(that say the little israelite will fight to the last Ukrainian) Zelensky said no because it's too much since it could really hurt the population and damage the economy further.
      Also there are rumours that his position was offered to both Budanov and Syrsky but both of the refused so things are leading to a potential leadership crisis internally.

    This is Zelensky purging his political rival.
    Zaluzhny has been making moves recently that pissed off Zelensky (his recent MSM article where he called the war a "stalemate" for example) as well as other actions that endanger Zelensky's power.

    As you guys point out Zaluzhny is very popular, and if things drag on he'll be replacing Zelensky soon.
    If Zaluzhny had any balls he'd stage a coup.
    He already declined the resignation initially showing he won't leave without a fight.

      You dense motherfricker.

      You cannot suddenly manifest the idea that Zaluzhny is interested in the role of President. He is not a political rival to Zelensky in terms of their system, but also, it's just not his deal.
      Intellectually he is a contemporary world class general. It's all he has strived to be a craftman at. Zelensky knows that. The Ukrainian people, if they think of their president becoming 'unsuccessful' and 'unable to continue' for whatever reason mention Budanov.

      I think Budanov will be a future president, but I think after his current mission is completed, and the war is over.

      The essay was really good, and a very honest appraisal of the war rather than some bullshit spin where they pretend everything is going swimmingly like how the Russians would act. That gave me a lot of respect for Zaluzhny. the article goes on to explain the rational steps needed to secure victory, which had a focus on more of everything. Ergo our goal is to ship as many modern and out-dated equipment to them stat.

        Ultimately if zaluzhny is replaced, it will be because Zelensky wants a top commander with a "Do more with less" mindset, as opposed to Zaluzhny's "Do more with more" approach. Zelensky and other major ukrainian figures have been going hard on the idea that Ukraine can't counter the russian death waves with numbers and piles of steel, it has to be done by investing in affordable, high tech systems, or effective lower-tech systems that can be used en masse like ukraine's buzz bombs.

            I think most Ukrainians secretly want for this to happen and for Zaluzhny to cut some kind of a deal with Ruskies.

          But they need more of everything as well as investing in novel high tech solutions that they're already using. They're damn near perfecting FPV UAV's and artillery strikes upon Russian attacks so that there is only a trickle of fighters alive when they reach Ukraine lines. They're taking 1:4 or 1:20 losses in Ankiivky and Krinky because of that. The endless wave of russians to their death eliminates the best Russian tech. Then on top of that, endless barage of cruise missiles into Crimea and elsewhere.

          You assume the political class likes honesty.
          That article was like spitting into Zelensky's soup making it 1000% harder for Zelensky to secure more foreign aid. Remember in the beginning when Europe didn't want to help because they thought it was pointless and the war would be over in a week? Remember how they changed their minds after Ukraine was making quick gains and started sending help? Well they're having serious doubts again.
          Zelensky was trying to keep that momentum but Zaluzhny fricked it up. He called it what it is, an unwinnable stalemate unless you want to bleed everyone dry (Ukraine of men, and the west of funds).

          It's better than bullshit lies, since the failure to make progress in the south is an utter embarrasment. And it's due to lack of equipment that they previously requested so the stance should be "See? We told you so. We told you we wanted 600+ modern European-American IFV, and hundreds more tanks than we got."

          And they should focus on the progress in Crimea, and the good the cruise missiles are doing. When Ukraine has the equipment, they put it to good use.

          They've already killed Prigzhozhin, Gerisomov is missing, half of VDV is dead, half of Russia's top tanks are gone, they lose fighters weekly now. The bleeding of Russia's best equipment and talent is ongoing.

            They didn't do shit to pringles anon. He was shot down, ahem his plane had a sudden explosive decompression, well inside Russian airspace. If they were capable of killing him in that location they would have killed literally any other Russian general or even Putin/Shoigu.

            Again we're talking "I can sneak a bomb onto the plane of whoever I want"/"I can sneak a Buk between Moscow and St Petersburg" level. It was Russia under Putin's orders 100%.

            Yes but this is a 2-way street; Russia has been upgrading, improving and getting their act together constantly at the same time. They hustled like crazy to boost military production and bring in foreign-sourced weapons. They mobilized an army of lawyers and consultants to set up sanction evasion on a MASSIVE scale to the point EU’s sanction inspectors admit that they literally don’t have the resources to go after every evasion scam. Putin is flogging all parts of the economy into action for the war and the FSB is up everyone’s asses to control corruption and un-frick their military. The Pentagon made the analysis early in the war that the Russian’s problems were self-inflicted and that they will solve them over time. Ukraine is also improving but they’re starting MASSIVELY behind Russia in this contest.

              I know Peter Zeihan said years ago that this was Russia's war to lose, and that Russians start every conflict like this. Bumble through the early parts, lose so many men and equipment it seems hopeless, then they mass mobilize and send wave after wave to overwhelm the defenders until they win. And like past conflicts like The Crimean War they will keep fighting until they literally cannot, so they won't stop after taking insane losses.

              So he's turning out to be right again, and I hate it. Russia could lose 3/4 of their top leadership, their best units, their best planes, their best ships, 50% of the black sea fleet, but as long as they either grind Ukraine down or outright annex it they will win.

              Ukraine is just too small for this to go solo. They need more. I can't see a way out unless someone sends them a few hundred thousand troops and their modern army along with it.

              I saw this rumor circulate in both UA and RU media and on Twitter a few days back
              I wouldn't be surprised if CNN just reported on an already dead rumor
              Western media has been terrible when it came to Ukraine since 2014, never trust those morons whether they're reporting on Russian incompetence or doomposting

              CNN is claiming insider anonymous sources inside Ukraine government. Could be some secretary, or an officer.

                Lose like US in Vietnam or lose like Germany in ww2? I doubt any of those will happen since they'll not leave Ukraine and they'll not capitulate. Everything will probably finish Korea style with what is basically a draw.

        You dense motherfricker.

        You cannot suddenly manifest the idea that Zaluzhny is interested in the role of President. He is not a political rival to Zelensky in terms of their system, but also, it's just not his deal.
        Intellectually he is a contemporary world class general. It's all he has strived to be a craftman at. Zelensky knows that. The Ukrainian people, if they think of their president becoming 'unsuccessful' and 'unable to continue' for whatever reason mention Budanov.

        I think Budanov will be a future president, but I think after his current mission is completed, and the war is over.

    If you legitimately browse /k/, and you read those articles, and your vatnik alarm didn't go off, what the frick is wrong with you?

    My biggest issue the western journalists who went with this story won't be tarred and feathered. Journos are usually fully aware of what they're doing in terms of the validity of their copy. All of these guys know they're vomiting bullshit from the kremlin.

    If I was a Russian glowie though, I would be a little worried though. Because while the world might be capivated by this horseshit, Ukraine has been pulling crazier and crazier shit over the skies of Kherson and Crimea, virtually un opposed. They have been able to bring boats close enough to launch significant drone attacks against Crimea. Closer and closer.

    In fact if you look at what has been happening for over a month now you can see a fairly definitive direction this is all heading. But it's like instead of all the hype everyone is nice and distracted? Russia isn't really reacting they're kinda just crumbling? Even for Russia?

    Definitely a time to fire a hero of Ukraine. Definitely likely.

    They disagree over the fundamental details, which are only really a problem now that they've lost their momentum. Previously, disagreeing over risky manoeuvres and a broader draft were problems for the future, and now it's the future.

    Zelensky is willing to risk failure if it means a chance at seriously weakening Russian control over certain areas, if it means keeping the draft from becoming an issue which seriously harms public support. Zaluzhny wants to create an entire new army group, risking public backlash and materiel-shortages, in order replicate the success of previous counter-offensives that didn't require dire concentration of forces.

    In the end, Zelensky thinks he has limited time and support from the West, and wants to try to smash softer targets to create openings along the lines. Zaluzhny thinks he can get by with dwindling support and believes he can grind down the frontlines until they collapse.

    Gonna go out on a limb and say the general wants the war over and done with, admitting Ukraine can't sustain the current losses, despite the ratios in play, and Zelensky's refusal to discuss a peace accord means more and more Ukrainian men die every day and more infrastructure gets destroyed.

      True. By creating a much larger army, and carry out the mass infantry assaults that'll actually allow Ukraine to win the war.

    Lol you people are so fricking moronic. It was obvious a few days ago when Zaluzhny and zelensky met and there were sources in the presidential administration that leaked it.
    But you all were smug and self-indulgent, the mods even deleted the thread. You should be more modest because your smug posting is becoming insufferable.

      I wonder what the reason could have been? Perhaps Zaluzhnyi and Zelensky's office both denying it? But surely you have a better evidence than that, right? This evidence is why you are so smug about this "news m" at the very moment, right? And when nothing happens again you will have a nice day like a moronic troony that you are, right?

    >Zelensky’s top general, Valery Zaluzhny, described the battlefield situation in November as a “stalemate,” a comment that reportedly angered Zelensky. Acrimony between the two men exploded into the headlines this week when Zelensky reportedly fired – then rehired – Zaluzhny, all while Kiev’s censorship office dismissed the story as a baseless rumor aimed at “destroying the unity of Ukrainian society.”
    >According to British newspaper The Times, Zaluzhny’s position was offered to Budanov, who declined. Had Zelensky replaced Zaluzhny with Budanov, he would have swapped a cynic with someone who shares his “messianic” belief in a military victory over Russia, as Zelensky’s aides described his vision in a Time magazine article last year.
    >It is unclear whether Zaluzhny, like Budanov, believes that Ukraine will be able to launch a counteroffensive this spring.

    zelensky is past his expiration date, he has turned into a dictator.. they should have elections, but he has banned all elections. how can we say russia is a dictatorship, and ignore zelensky banning elections and banning the russian language? it appears to me suddenly that both side are not better than the other sides

    To summarize the problems of the counter offensive:

    1. USA-Europe gave mostly extra equipment meant to be phased out, which is only good enough for a start. They never adopted a war-footing, and they needed to give an order of magnitude more of everything.

    2. Ukraine got too wienery with early successes, and let Russia defend for months in the South.

    3. USA-Europe also got wienery, and thought an armor blitz in the south could work through minefields.

    4. The extent of the mine-fields didn't seem to be known until after the attack started.

    5. They kept pushing anyways until Robotyne at great losses.

    So it seems that they should have instead kept pushing the south instead of giving the Russians pause, and that NATO countries should have given 10x more IFV and light tanks.
