Soldiers of the battalion loyal to 67th Mechanized Brigade rebranded its unit.

On January 28, our site reported that part of 1st Assault Battalion “Da Vinci Woves” left the structure of 67th Mechanized Brigade, and joined another brigade. As the result, the unit has recently undergone a structural transformation.

The battalion removed “Da Vinci Wolves” from its name, changed the insignia and established new social media pages. The command called it as a cleanup phase, and the unit continues to carry combat tasks at the front.

The command of the battalion, 67th Mechanized Brigade and the leadership of Right Sector declared that the unit continues to fight on the same principles as it was found back in 2014, and performs combat duties in honor of its fallen commander Dmytro Kotsiubailo.

The breakaway group, led by the girlfriend of Dmytro Kotsiubailo, have not yet released a statement regarding the ongoing situation and continues to use Da Vinci Wolves name, including the original insignia.

Da Vinci is a town near Florence (Italy) famous for being the place of origin of Leonardo’s family (he who among other things drew the Mona Lisa)

Vinci in modern Italian is the second person singular, of the present tense, of the verb to win


I read about cases where right-wing Ukrainian troops attacked Ukrainians, who by their place of birth speak Russian.

Is the separation of the Da Vinci department due to a language problem?

Do the two groups continue to fight? Has either of them been moved?

Thank you


Political differences?


Just stop reading russian propaganda 🤦


I hate propaganda (regardless of who makes it)

If 2 posts are made it means that the fact is important (the old boss is a Ukrainian hero). I’m just asking about the reason for the separation.

Due to the problems created by the language, this was reported in an interview by a pro-Ukrainian Italian who has lived in the Odessa oblast for decades


There are no “language problems” in Ukraine. This narrative has been promoted by russian propaganda for 30 years. In the armed forces of Ukraine, Ukrainian-speaking and russian-speaking Ukrainians now fight together without any problems. So I repeat, you should not read russian propaganda 😉

I’m just trying to understand.

What is the reason for the division into two groups?
