24th Mechanized Brigade is a mechanized brigade of Ukrainian Armed Forces. It’s a successor of 24th Infantry Division of Soviet Army, which became part of Ukrainian Armed Forces after the collapse of Soviet Union. The brigade participated in peacekeeping missions in Kosovo, Iraq and numerous exercises abroad. In 2014, the unit was involved in liberation of Slovyansk, Kramatorsk and later Lysychansk.

At the start of the Russian full-scale invasion in 2022, the brigade was deployed in the area of Popasna, Zolote and Krymske.
