The Special Operations Forces are only four years old, but in this short period you have become a true elite of the army.
Special operations forces stand for intelligence and perfect training, and your contribution to strengthening Ukraine's defense capabilities is vital.
Warriors of the Special Operations Forces are unique professionals who are in no way inferior to the experienced specialists of the relevant units of NATO member states, and in some cases surpass them.

You are our heroes, our pride, a model for all soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, an example of courage, unbreakable spirit, courage and loyalty to the Military Oath!
The motto of the Special Operations Forces is the battle slogan of Prince Sviatoslav the Brave - “I‘m coming for you!”. And there is no enemy who would withstand before you.

I express my sincere gratitude to the veterans of the Special Operations Forces, who pass on their invaluable combat experience to the young defenders of Ukraine!
