Zelenskiy set to replace Ukraine's top commander Zaluzhny -FT

(Reuters) - Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy is preparing to replace top commander Valery Zaluzhny in what would be the biggest shake-up of its military brass during Russia's almost two-year-old invasion, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday.

Zelenskiy on Monday offered Valeriy Zaluzhny, the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, a new role but the general refused, the FT report said, citing four people familiar with the discussions.
