Top advisor comments on CinC Zaluzhnyi's meeting with NATO command

The so-called “secret” meeting of Ukraine’s Commander-in-Chief Valery Zaluzhnyi and NATO commanders was in fact a routine event, one of the many such conversations whose content never makes it into the media space.

This was stated by the adviser to the head of the President's Office, Mykhailo Podolyak, who spoke on the air of the national telethon, Ukrinform reports with reference to

"This meeting was ‘secret’ for the media. Zaluzhnyi is in active contact with representatives from our partners’ Ministries of Defense or General Staffs – almost every day," said Podolyak.

According to the advisor, such meetings are held because it is necessary to constantly adjust tactics and strategies, see what Russia is doing, and explain to partners what Ukraine requires, (finding out - ed.) whether the military can expect additional missiles, additional front-line air defense capabilities, or even F- 16s.

"These consultations are ongoing. Moreover, they are held with our partners from the US and UK. But what exactly the parties are talking about will not be discussed on the air," the advisor emphasized.

It should be recalled that on August 26, The Guardian said NATO command held an unpublicized meeting on the Polish border with the Commander-in-Chief of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, Valery Zaluzhnyi.
