Despite the fact that every day people are dying in Eastern Ukraine, all soldiers of the special battalion agreed to a dangerous assignment and decided not to stand aside but honestly and faithfully serve the Ukrainian people because the comfort of the people is the highest reward!
The special battalion that left for the ATO area will be headed by Adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs Yevhen Deidei.
Before the trip the fighters were provided with everything necessary - uniforms, shoes, special gear, weapons as well as food and essentials. The range of tasks of the special battalion is extensive. They will ensure safety of objects (premises) as well as roadblocks. In addition, the soldiers of Kyiv-1 will be directly involved in the active phase of the anti-terrorist operation.
Some of the men who have recently joined the special unit continue their training: overcoming the obstacles and practising target shooting, they will join their colleagues in the east of the country to defend the citizens and the state.
The Kyiv HQ of the Ministry of Internal Affairs is enlisting patriots to serve in the units of special patrol police.
