Career change for Valery Zaluzhny: sidelined commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian army becomes ambassador

Former Ukrainian commander-in-chief Valery Zaluzhny (50), who was dismissed by President Volodymyr Zelensky last month, has taken a new position. Zaluzhny will soon be appointed Ukrainian ambassador to the United Kingdom. “He told me that diplomacy is the direction he wants to go,” responds Zelensky, who did not always get along with the general.
