"The brigade, which is brand new to Ukraine and similar to special operations force is being created in the National Guard. It will presumably be comparable to modern Western-model infantry brigade.
"After a year and a half of the war, Ukraine finally creates one normal detachment. This detachment is created in the National Guard, and the most important thing is that we have received carte blanche from the minister.
"The biggest and most important step, which the detachment starts from, is selection - the actual selection, which in fact did not exist in the ATO detachments before. Nine people out of 60 candidates left on the second day of the consecutive wave of the selection, and this is only the start. The Patriot Training Center described the selection parameters earlier and we were invited to give our assessment of the selection. The Patriot Training Center has established proper criteria for the instructors and their subordinates, in compliance with which they must continue their work," the volunteer wrote.
