Zelenskyy names new top military commander

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has appointed a new commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces.

Zelenskyy on Thursday named Oleksandr Syrskyi, the commander of Ukraine's ground forces, to lead the military, replacing Valerii Zaluzhnyi.

Zaluzhnyi led military operations against Russia's invasion of Ukraine. But he was reportedly at odds with Zelenskyy over issues, such as how to interpret battlefield situations.

Analysts say the major personnel shakeup will affect how Ukraine fights against Russian forces.
