Ukraine-Russia war live: Ukraine denies plan to sack three army chiefs

Ukraine has denied reports it is planning to sack three army chiefs in a fresh cull of the military’s top brass after its counter-offensive stalled.

Ukrainian newspapers reported that defence minister Rustem Umerov was preparing to sack Lt Gen Serhii Naiev, who is joint forces commander, Maj Gen Tetiana Ostashchenko, commander of the medical forces, and Brig Gen Oleksandr Tarnavskyi, who leads the southern Tavria group.

The Ukrainian defence ministry later issued a statement saying “information published by a number of media outlets is not true”, although it did not specify which media reports it was referring to.

Tensions between the country’s political leadership and the military have intensified in recent months as its counter-offensive has failed to break through Russian lines.
