From the Internet web site "Small Wars Journal" the article by Mitch Ruhl.

Militia the Ukraine crisis. Exacerbate an already tense situation.

"Paramilitary Forces in Ukraine: Matches to a Powder Keg"

 Mon, 02/21/2022 - 10:56pm

"In many ways, the militias of this conflict [as from the year 2014] share similarities with the Freikorps of Weimar Germany. Many possess a deeply-entrenched partisan nature—whether ideological or megalomaniacal, questionable loyalty to their government, and draw from a disillusioned veteran-base."


Militia as listed, paramilitary irregulars but heavily armed, organized, combat experienced and combat ready with an implacable hate directed at the adversary. Divide into the pro-Ukraine and pro-Russian elements.

* Pro-Ukraine.

   *Azov Battalion.

   * Right Sector.

   * Aidar.

* Pro-Russia.

   * Donetsk People's Republic Armed forces.

      * Vostok Brigade.

      * Russian Orthodox Army.

      * Varyag Battalion.

   * Luhansk  People's republic Armed Forces.

       * Cossack Guard.

       * Prizrak Brigade.

Militia both sides in an overt conflict can be expected to be the strong-arm, head-knocking shock troops during an overt conflict. Insurgents and counter-insurgent mission rolled-into-one so to speak.
