Sukharevsky, who fired the “first shot” in Donbass, became Syrsky’s deputy

Colonel Vadim Sukharevsky, who fired the “first shot” in Donbass in 2014, received the post of deputy commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Alexander Syrsky. RBC-Ukraine writes about this.

Sukharevsky led the third company of the 80th airmobile brigade, which operated in the vicinity of Slavyansk, near the village of Semenovka.

On February 13, 2014, a police station in Slavyansk was captured. The order was given not to open fire.

On that day, SBU special forces and paratroopers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were attacked by supporters of secession from Ukraine. Sukharevsky gave the order to intervene.

It is worth recalling that on February 8, Zelensky signed a decree releasing Zaluzhny from his post. Syrsky, who had previously commanded the Ukrainian Ground Forces, was appointed his successor.

Earlier, retired Colonel of the Russian Army Anatoly Matviychuk said that the key direction for the deployment of Ukrainian troops near Syrskoye could be Avdiivka. He suggested that this city would become the site of the heaviest military operations in the Northern Military District zone. Read more about this in material Public News Service.
