 Gen. Lytvyn is just one of candidates for senior position in Ground Forces, Poroshenko to take final decision, - Butusov

The new Commander of the Ground Forces will appoint his deputies after entering the office.

Censor.NET Chief Editor Yuri Butusov wrote on Facebook.

"I have had a brief conversation with Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak today. He noted that a number of candidates to the senior positions in the Command of the Ground Forces have been interviewed, but the decision is still to be taken. Thus, Lytvyn is one of the candidates and there is no reason to talk about some preferences regarding him. The Minister of Defense will recommend the President of Ukraine a candidate for position of the Commander of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which means that the decision will be taken by the president. The commendation is not ready yet. The new Commander of the Ground Forces will appoint his deputies after entering the office," Butusov wrote.
