The Ukrainian National Guard actually has tasks such as border protection and internal security. Since the beginning of the Russian offensive, their units have also been fighting at the front. Now President Zelensky is replacing several generals.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky issued a decree dismissing several high-ranking generals in the National Guard. The highest ranking officer was Lieutenant General Volodymyr Kondratyuk, 1st Deputy Chief of the National Guard. In addition, three deputies, Lieutenant General Oleksandr Nabok and two major generals, Ole Tsachon and Mykola Mykolenka, were attacked.

Except for Sachson, all the generals held office before the war. The background to the change in leadership of the National Guard is not yet known. A few months ago, Zelenskyj replaced the head of the authority and appointed a war-experienced officer in Olexandr Pivnenko.

The National Guard is a paramilitary unit that reports to the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs and is actually responsible for protecting border security and internal security. It was launched after Russia annexed Crimea in 2014 and has been particularly involved in fighting in eastern Ukraine. Since the beginning of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, the National Guard has been fighting on the front lines alongside the Ukrainian army.
