Ukraine has succeeded in winning the Battle of Kyiv in a David vs. Goliath battle.
The duties given to Ukraine’s SOF include participating in raids behind enemy lines, gathering intelligence and constructing intelligence networks, going on hostage or prisoner rescue missions, assisting partisans in planning attacks, and conducting psychological operations. The motto of the Special Operations Forces of Ukraine: Sviatoslav the Brave, a grand prince of Kiev in the tenth century, is credited with saying I Come At You! Sviatoslav, who was renowned for his bravery, was able to overcome large armies. The Special Operations Forces Day was observed on July 29. Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine, said, We are all sure in the high degree of your training, hardening, invincibility of spirit, courage, and resolve, even though your exploits are not publicly discussed and your faces are never revealed. “On this day I also would like to mention SOF soldiers who died in the battles for independence and the sovereignty of our state. Eternal memory to them! We all thank the soldiers in gray berets for the worthy fulfillment of their mission to protect the territorial integrity, independence and sovereignty of Ukraine!”
