33rd Mechanized Brigade is a military unit of Ukrainian Ground Forces formed in 2016, but subsequently demobilized. The brigade has been restored in January 2023 to face Russian invasion forces and received new insignia.
A tank battalion with Leopard 2A4 tanks from 4th Tank Brigade was reassigned to 33rd Mechanized Brigade upon its arrival to Ukraine.
On June 9, 2023, during an assault near Mala Tokmachka in Zaporizhzhia Oblast, a deputy commander of the brigade, Lt. Col. Andriy Boyko, was killed.
In November 2023, it became known that 33rd Mechanized Brigade was reassigned from 9th Army Corps to 10th Army Corps.
Both Ukrainian Army Corps report changes in its structure and 10th Army Corps has a new commander.
Ukrainian Ground forces continue to grow and form additional brigades to counter the Russian invasion.
Here you can find the last known structure of the unit, including their insignias if available.
