Under conditions of martial law, a full-scale war and, as history has shown more than once, just being close to Russia, Ukrainians need the knowledge and skills to resist the invaders. For this purpose, a Center for preparing the population for national resistance was created in Transcarpathia.
This center has become the first such institution in Ukraine and will work on a permanent basis. Its leader for the first 3 years was a man who already had experience in military affairs – Colonel Yuri Belyakov.

The center for preparing the population for national resistance will be engaged in the training of civilians. At the same time, they will be trained by military personnel with combat experience.
It will include a team of experienced instructors who will ensure the fulfillment of the assigned tasks. This is an important task of national importance, which will strengthen the system of national resistance in Ukraine and Transcarpathia, – said the head of the Transcarpathian OVA Viktor Mykyta.
Everyone at the National Resistance Training Center can get the skills:
