General Staff Chief Muzhenko Practically Removed from Command of the Anti-Terrorist Operation - Butusov

Chief of the General Staff Viktor Muzhenko de facto removed from the status of the anti-terrorist operation commander.

This is stated by military expert, Censor.NET editor-in-chief Yurii Butusov on his Facebook page.

He writes: "He is now in Kiev, giving testimony on Ilovaisk entrapment. The responsibilities of the ATO commander had been transferred to the Deputy Chief of the General Staff Hennadii Vorobiov. Well, that's not bad. Vorobiov's thinking is more realistic. He also demanded the withdrawal of troops from the Ilovaisk, and had argued with Muzhenko.

It is necessary to remove all the deputy ministers of defense, and the entire leadership of the military intelligence of the Ministry of Defense. And the leadership of Defense should not be one new man but a whole team.

I am going to Shuster Live (political talk show) now where I was promised an opportunity to argue with Heletei (current Minister of Defense). But Heletei will not show up. He is now at the National Security Council, where I hope the Commander-in-Chief will remove him from office along with Muzhenko. "
