Kyiv Regiment is a Special Purpose Patrol Police unit formed in November 2015 by merging volunteer battalions Kyiv-1, Kyiv-2, Zoloti Vorota, Sich and Svyata Mariya under a single command.
In 2016, Svyata Mariya unit was disbanded by its commander, stating that the members volunteered to fight against the enemy, not to protect public order.
Since the first days of Russian re-invasion in February 2022, the unit actively participated in the defense of Kyiv and Avdiivka.
