Commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian army, Valerii Zaluzhny, is often too direct and does not give "bright" hopes. In a recent address, he said that the victory of Ukraine would be a break between this and the next attack by the Russian Federation. However, Ukrainians love Zaluzhny and listen to him. For 7 months, Ukrainians have never once condemned his actions. Probably his professionalism was noticed abroad, too — Zaluzhny looks from a fresh Times issue at the Americans.
The October issue with the image of the commander-in-chief will tell that Zaluzhny will become a reformist for Ukraine. Journalists believe that he will turn the army acting on the Soviet model into a modern combat team. Military preparedness for any scenario, both before and during the war, is also noted. Valerii Zaluzhny provided careful preparation for a large-scale invasion that might not have taken place. Journalists also believe that the commander-in-chief has a deliberate tactic. It is noted as special operations in the early stages of the war that helped slow down the invaders. Also, Time reports more recent examples. Like starting a counteroffensive. Ukraine declared the preparation and beginning of progress in the Kherson region, but the most significant forces were directed toward the liberation of the Kharkiv region. This made Russian troops nervous, and they retreated.
Journalists are right about one thing: if Zelenskyy and Zaluzhny lead Ukraine to victory, they will always be in history.
