Donbas Battalion

Donbas battalion (батальйон Донбас) was founded by Semen Semechenko, originally as national militia in Donetsk region. In April 2014, the unit was renamed to Territorial Battalion of Donbas, but the leadership of Donetsk region did not support Semechenko’s initiative and the volunteer unit was forced to relocate to Dnipropetrovsk region. Nowadays, Donbas Battalion is far from what it was in 2014. While there still remains some veterans, who participated in Illovaysk and Debaltsevo, many of them left the battalion.
