General Valerii Zaluzhnyi, former Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and Lieutenant General Serhii Shaptala, former Chief of the General Staff, have been released from military duty for health reasons, APA reports citing Ukrainski Pravda.

Ukrainski Pravda cited independent sources within the Defence Ministry as saying that Zaluzhnyi and Shaptala have been discharged based on the conclusion of a military medical board declaring them unfit for military service and have been removed from the military register.
