Formed by Pavlo Palisa, who studied at Command and Staff College of the US Army and returned to Ukraine to fight against the enemy. The 5th Assault Regiment is the first of its kind in the structure of Ukrainian Army and focuses solely on assaulting, as the name suggest. The regiment has close ties to 58th Motorized Brigade because the commander previously served in the brigade and was originally supposed to become a deputy commander there.
On February 24, 2023, the regiment was reformed into a brigade and the famous 24th Assault Battlion Aidar was assigned under its command.
Ukraine expands its firstborn assault regiment formed in May 2022 to a size of brigade.
