Chernihiv Company is a unit of Special Tasks Patrol Police and one of the first volunteer units created in 2014. The unit was formed as a volunteer battalion on April 16 in Chernihiv Oblast, primarily by the members of 14th Maidan Self-Defense unit (prominent first-line Maidan volunteers consisting of Desna Ultras).
