Zelensky says two generals who turned out to be traitors stripped of their rank

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that two Ukrainian generals have been stripped of their rank because they turned out to be traitors.

He said this in a video address, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Today another decision was made on anti-heroes - now I don't have time to deal with all traitors, but gradually all of them will be punished. That is why Andriy Olehovych Naumov, former head of the main department of internal security at the Security Service of Ukraine, and Serhiy Oleksandrovych Kryvoruchko, former head of the SBU directorate in the Kherson region, are no longer generals," Zelensky said.

He added that "these high-ranking servicemen, who could not decide on where their homeland is, who violate the military oath of allegiance to the Ukrainian people regarding the protection of our state, its freedom, independence, will certainly be deprived of their high military rank."
