Sicheslav Company (Рота Січеслав) was a volunteer battalion supported by numerous of Cossack organization from the Zaporozhia region of Ukraine. The training was very chaotic and the unit lacked food and equipment because the raised money through charity funds were stolen by the commander. Many volunteers left the battalion because of this and joined other volunteer units. A new commander, ex-Berkut officer, was appointed in 2015 and banned usage of the red-black flag as well as the chant “Glory to Ukraine.” The unit was reformed into a company and Sicheslav battalion de-facto ceased to exist. The original insignia, which is also visible on this page, is banned in the unit and most of the members are former police or Berkut officers.
