Syrskyi: Ukraine begins rotation of long-serving frontline troops

Oleksandr Syrskyi, Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, announced the initiation of a rotation process for battalions and units that have been performing combat tasks on the frontline “for a long time.”

In a statement on Facebook, Syrskyi highlighted the significance of this development despite the challenging situation along the entire frontline.

“The positive aspect is that, despite the quite difficult situation across the entire frontline, we have managed to initiate the process of rotations and replacements for battalions and units that have been performing combat tasks on the frontline for a long time. This will allow us to stabilize the situation and positively affect the morale and psychological state of our soldiers,” Syrskyi stated.

The Commander-in-Chief also shared details of his visit to the Zaporizhzhia direction, where he assured that all necessary decisions had been made to enhance the combat capabilities of Ukrainian brigades.

“I continued my work with the brigades holding the defense in the Zaporizhzhia direction. The operational situation in this area is under our control. The enemy continues to attack our positions in the areas of Robotyne and Verbove but without significant success. Combat actions are characterized by the extensive use of drones of all types, combined with artillery and mortar fire,” Syrskyi explained.

Syrskyi emphasized the increasing role of strike drones as the main offensive weapon for ground units in combat and the growing importance of modern and powerful electronic warfare (EW) means for the reliable protection of Ukrainian servicemen.

“In these conditions, the confrontation between drones and EW has come to the forefront, and only the one who can first achieve a lead over the enemy in this competition will have a chance for victory,” Syrskyi concluded.
