The Ukrainian command has reorganized the 153rd Infantry Brigade back into a mechanized brigade. The change was announced through the brigade’s official social media channels.

While an official reason was not provided, it is likely related to increased support from the West and the supply of additional equipment for mechanized brigades. The brigade also recently received a new insignia, probably due to the reorganization.

In April 2024, we reported on the reorganization of the 153rd Brigade from a mechanized to an infantry brigade. The planned reorganization of 152nd Mechanized Brigade mentioned in the April’s article had not been completed, and the brigade remained mechanized.
