Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valerii Zaluzhnyi held talks today, November 30, with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, Charles Brown, according to Zaluzhnyi's Facebook page.

Discussed front

Zaluzhnyi reports the enemy's conduct of local offensive actions in the Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Maryinka directions.

"At the same time, the Security and Defense Forces inflict significant losses on the enemy in manpower and equipment, as well as exhaust him along the entire front line," wrote the chief commander.

Seeking technological solutions

Zaluzhnyi informs that he and General Brown agreed to continue working together on finding technological solutions to gain an advantage over the enemy in the air, fire impact, and demining.

He also shares with partners the results of our research on the effectiveness of certain types of armaments.

"Sincerely thank General Brown and the entire American people for their consistent support and assistance to Ukraine in the fight against Russian occupiers," added Zaluzhnyi.

Situation on the front

Today, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports that Ukrainian soldiers hold positions on the left bank of the Dnipro River, repelled Russian attacks near the village of Verbove (Zaporizhzhia region), and destroyed the enemy's radio-electronic warfare station.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg recently described the situation on the battlefield in Ukraine as very challenging. The front line has not changed significantly since the start of the Ukrainian counteroffensive, but Russian forces are suffering significant losses in both personnel and equipment.

Additionally, differences in public assessments of the situation on the front between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the Chief Commander of the Armed Forces Valerii Zaluzhnyi are not considered significant within the North Atlantic Alliance.
