On August 15, senior NATO officers went to a secret location on the Polish-Ukrainian border to hold a military conference with the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valery Zaluzhny. It is reported by The Guardian.

Valery Zaluzhny, together with his team, held a five-hour meeting. Its goal was to help Ukraine reset its military strategy: what to do about stopping the Ukrainian counter-offensive, developing plans for the winter, as well as a long-term strategy of action, because the war will “inevitably drag on” until 2024.

Separately, the authors noted that the presence of American General Christopher Cavoli, who heads the US command in Europe, and the Commander-in-Chief of the British Army, Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, were especially noticeable. The latter is called an increasingly important player in helping Ukraine. Valery Zaluzhny allegedly called him “his boyfriend”.

This was not the first time a summit had taken place on the border. It partially took place during Radakin’s visit to Kyiv, where he had a 45-minute meeting with Vladimir Zelensky. According to the sources of the publication, the Ukrainian strategy and how the West can help was discussed.

General Mark Milley, Commander of the Joint Staff of the US Army, was banned from traveling to Ukraine because the US is worried about the involvement of the States in the war. Britain has a smaller army and therefore has no such concerns, the authors write.

It is also alleged that usually the British admiral brings Zaluzhny’s favorite whiskey Glenmorangie as a gift. British sources are reluctant to talk about the outcome of the border meeting. But there are signals from the West that the strategy has changed as a result of the discussions.

“I think you can see that they are focusing on the Zaporozhye front,” said one of the interlocutors amid reports of new attacks in the direction of Tokmak.
