The 3rd Separate Assault Brigade (Ukrainian: 3-тя окрема штурмова бригада) is a mechanized assault brigade that was formed on November 1st, 2022 as a response to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.[1]

History

The brigade was formed in November 2022 from the Azov Special Operations Forces (SSO), and originally formed by veterans of the Azov Regiment, and is considered to be a fully-fledged combat unit within the Ukrainian Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.[2][3] The formation of the brigade was done with the aim of providing a highly mobile, well-armed and well-trained unit that can effectively engage in both defensive and offensive operations.[3]

Currently, the brigade is deployed to the area of Bakhmut, a city in the Donetsk Oblast of Ukraine.[4] The brigade is in the process of forming a second TERRA.

The Brigade was granted its Regimental Colour on 24 February 2023 by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a Presentation of Colours ceremony.[5]

The Azov Special Operations Detachment (Ukrainian:
Окремий загін спеціального призначення «Азов», romanized: Okremyi zahin
spetsialnoho pryznachennia "Azov"), also known as the Azov Regiment
(Ukrainian: Полк Азов, romanized: Polk Azov) or Azov Battalion until
September 2014, is a unit of the National Guard of Ukraine based in
Mariupol in the coastal region of the Sea of Azov. Azov formed as a
volunteer paramilitary militia in May 2014, and has since been fighting
Russian forces in the Donbas War. It first saw combat recapturing
Mariupol from Russian forces and pro-Russian separatists in June 2014.
It initially operated as a volunteer police company, until it was
formally incorporated into the National Guard on 11 November 2014. In
the wake of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, the battalion gained
renewed attention for its use by Russia in justifying the invasion and
during the Siege of Mariupol for its role in the defense of the city.
