As reported by Censor.NET citing Espresso TV, the brigade is to become the first fully professional, contract-based unit consisting of volunteers alone trained according to NATO standards. All drills are supervised by Ukrainian and foreign instructors who have combat experience.

"One of the main tasks of the brigade is eliminating sabotage and reconnaissance groups wherever they were and whatever weapons they had. The unit is equipped with up-to-date and effective arms. But the main peculiarity is its high level of mobility. The brigade will have helicopters, military transport aircraft at its disposal.
