Ukraine turns to Tampa group for help setting up new commando HQ | Tampa Bay Times

Commando forces in the Ukraine were decimated during fighting in 2014 against pro-Russian insurgents and so-called “little green men” — masked Russian commandos in unmarked army uniforms.

So when it came time to rebuild and adjust to modern warfare, Ukraine officials turned for help to the non-profit Global SOF Foundation, a Tampa-based special operations advocacy group.

Today, the foundation is credited with helping put Ukraine on the right footing with advice on structuring a special operations command, communicating with other nations, and learning best practices for commando warfare.
