(Reuters) – President Volodymyr Zelenskiy appointed Volodymyr Karpenko as new commander of Ukraine’s Logistics Forces on Thursday, according to a presidential decree.

Karpenko, previously logistics commander of Ukraine’s ground forces, replaced Oleh Huliaka, who had held the position since 2021.

Karpenko’s appointment was the latest in a series of personnel changes in the military, including the naming of Oleksandr Syrskyi as commander in chief of the armed forces in place of Valerii Zaluzhnyi.
