Although the Ukrainian president actually didn’t say what the charges were or what their purported treasonous deeds were, Zelensky didn’t keep the dismissal of two of his top generals for being “traitors” a secret.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has ousted two of his own generals for being “traitors” according to a statement on the presidency’s website published on Friday.
“Today another decision was made. Regarding antiheroes. Now I do not have time to deal with all the traitors. But gradually they will all be punished,” Zelensky stated, implying that he believes there will be more “traitors” are in the echelons which will soon be addressed.
The following is how the duo of generals were identified in the statement: “That is why the ex-chief of the Main Department of Internal Security of the Security Service of Ukraine Naumov Andriy Olehovych and the former head of the Office of the Security Service of Ukraine in the Kherson region Kryvoruchko Serhiy Oleksandrovych are no longer generals,” according to the presidency’s website.
These were high-ranking command roles. The country’s major intelligence agency is the “Main Department of Internal Security.”

The president actually didn’t say what the charges were or what their purported treasonous deeds were, and just simply said that they “have not decided where their homeland is” – implying pro-Russian sentiments or a reluctance to execute forth state commands at the command level.
Zelensky stated: “According to Article 48 of the Disciplinary Statute of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, those servicemen among senior officers who have not decided where their homeland is, who violate the military oath of allegiance to the Ukrainian people [in regard to] the protection of our state, its freedom and independence, will inevitably be deprived of senior military ranks. Random generals don’t belong here!”
Despite recent Western reports indicating a Russian army drawdown in Chernihiv and Kiev, Zelensky warned the population to expect “powerful strikes” – even as news surfaced that the Russians are planning attacks from extended ranges.
“The invaders are allocating their sick creativity to the temporarily occupied areas of the Kherson region,” he stated. “Also in Donbas, in Mariupol, in the Kharkiv direction, Russian troops are accumulating the potential for strikes. Powerful strikes.”
