There Is No Ceasefire In Ukraine. There May Be No Strategy To Counter Russian Aggression, Either

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has dismissed the head of the counter-terrorism centre within the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU).

According to a presidential decree, published this afternoon on the president's website, Gennady Ivanovich Kuznetsov has been "relieved of his duties as head of the Centre for special counter-terrorism operations, the protection of participants in criminal justice and law enforcement personnel of the Ukrainian Security Service."

The centre commands the Alfa special forces unit. 

Kuznetsov was appointed to this post on March 7 by the then-acting president, Oleksandr Turchynov, replacing Oleg Prisyazhny.

He was wounded near Slavyansk in April, when his car was fired on.

President Poroshenko has now appointed a replacement for the position, one Boris Hennadievich Balioz.
