See the Kyiv Post coverage of the event here. Abizaid is retired from the U.S Army as a four-star general in 2007 after 34 years of active command, including being commander of U.S Central Command. In September 2016, Abizaid was appointed to advise Ukrainian Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak on ways to strengthen Ukraine’s military.
