Relevant information about joining the territorial defense and voluntary formations of territorial communities

What every man 16-65 must do:

Report to the territorial defense base nearest to your residency

You need to have with you:

  • Passport and Tax ID
  • Military ID (if present)
  • A backpack with warm clothes, an additional pair of comfortable shoes, underwear, hygiene products, personal tableware, multitool, first aid kit, a sleeping bag, a sleeping mat, a set of walkie-talkies (if present).

The recommended number of men to apply to the territorial defense per group is 10. Every group appoints its own superior.

Important: if you show up to enroll and become a part of the territorial defense, you will remain for service in the place of enrollment.

If you show up at the registration point you must carry out the assignments currently relevant at that very location.

There could potentially be no need for you to remain at the territorial defense base. In that case, you will be able to return home and await the commanders’ instructions. Everything depends on each given region.

Voluntary formations of territorial communities

The prioritized members of voluntary formations of territorial communities as of now are those who have personal weapons.

The formation submits to the chief of the nearest territorial defense unit, coordinate all their steps with him and follow his instructions.
