Tradition of the Ukrainian paramilitary movement was born in such military formations as the Zaporozhian Sich, the Legion of the Ukrainian Sich Riflemen and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army. The paramilitary troops have been defending Ukraine against invaders for centuries.
The newest example – is the beginning of hostilities in the east of our state when thousands of Ukrainian citizens, abandoning their own affairs – education, work, business and families – and stood to resist to the Russian army.
Volunteers – thanks to their courage, devotion to national interest and genuine patriotism – managed to stop the Russian aggressor, helped to mobilize forces in the rear and supply the army with weapons. If there were not goodwill of the best sons and daughters of the state, it would not be known how the destiny of our country would be. The names of volunteers were inscribed with golden letters in successful operations on liberation of the Ukrainian land from invaders.
Today, the aim of all volunteers is only one – defending our state. All of them definitely believe that we will win.
