In a conversation with Milli, the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian army expressed gratitude to the United States for the supply of air defense systems.
The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny had a telephone conversation with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, General Mark Milley. Zaluzhny himself revealed his phone conversation with Milli on Saturday, February 11 in Telegram.
He indicated that he shared with General Mark Milley concerns about Russia’s use of maritime surface drones, which pose a threat to civilian shipping in the Black Sea.
“I informed my colleague about the results of the latest massive enemy missile attack, stressed the importance of air defense systems and thanked them again for providing them,” he wrote.
The parties also discussed the course of the battle.
Zaluzhny noted that the most tense situation has developed in the direction of Donetsk, where the Russian invaders carry out up to 50 attacks every day. Fierce fighting continues in the area of Ugledar and Marinka.
At the same time, the Commander-in-Chief emphasized that the Ukrainian defenders courageously held the defense and managed to restore the previously lost positions in some sectors of the front and gain a foothold there.
Zaluzhny stressed that Ukrainian units continue to keep Bakhmut under control and are taking steps to stabilize the front line around this city.
He also thanked General Milli for understanding the needs of the Defense Forces to repel Russian armed aggression, his significant personal contribution to the imminent Ukrainian victory, and unwavering support for Ukraine.
It will be remembered that on February 10, the Armed Forces of Ukraine repelled the attacks of the Russians in the area of Bakhmut and Kremennaya. The enemy is suffering heavy losses, but is trying to advance in five directions.
