Zelensky suggests creating regional mini-armies in peacetime

Vladimir Zelensky submitted to the Parliament a bill "On national resistance". It regulates the creation of volunteer detachments and territorial defense forces under the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Such units will report to the President, his local appointees, and the military. According to the initiative, it will be possible to form volunteer "armies" in the regions now, without any war. The territorial armies are assigned a wide range of tasks-from military resistance in the event of war to patrolling the streets, protecting objects and maintaining public order in peacetime.
