Russian President Vladimir Putin has put general Aleksandr Dvornikov in charge of the country’s invasion in Ukraine as Moscow’s forces regroup after failing to capture the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, the BBC and The New York Times reported on Saturday. The New York Times reported that Dvornikov, commander of Russia’s southern military district, has significant combat experience in Syria, where he commanded Russian forces for a year beginning in 2015.

Prior to Dvornikov’s appointment, no central commander was directing Russian forces on the ground in Ukraine, US officials told the newspaper. The appointment comes as Russian forces have completely withdrawn from positions in the north of Ukraine, around Kyiv and Chernihiv, after failing to take the Ukrainian capital. The troops have moved into Belarus and western Russia to be refitted with weapons and supplies in preparation for an offensive in eastern Ukraine, according to The Hill.
