Volunteer units played an important role in the beginning of War in Donbas as Ukrainian Army was in very bad shape. Most of them never held a rifle before yet they all volunteered to fight for Ukrainian freedom and sovereignty.
Based on three months research, the list includes all active volunteer and half-volunteer units created to face the aggression in the east. The list is divided into categories: National Guard, Patrol Police Special Task Units, Armed Forces of Ukraine, territorial battalions, Ukrainian Volunteer Corps, independent units, foreign units and disbanded units.
Second version, released a month later, added more information such as commanders portraits and current area of defense. Some insignias were edited or created from scratch.
