The Armed Forces of Ukraine are the military forces of Ukraine. They are the main deterrent force against aggression against Ukraine's sovereign state. All military and security forces, including Armed Forces are under the control of the president of Ukraine. They are subject to supervision by a permanent Verkhovna Rada parlamentar commission.
The Ukrainian Ground Forces, Ukrainian Air Force, Ukrainian Navy, Ukrainian Air Assault Forces, and Special Operations Forces make up the armed forces of Ukraine. The Ukrainian Navy has its own small Ukrainian Naval Infantry unit, along with its own Ukrainian Naval Aviation force. The Territorial Defense Forces are the Military Reserve Force and can be mobilized in large numbers for civilian volunteers in case of war. The Ukrainian Sea Guard, the coast guard service in Ukraine, is part of the Border Guard Service. It is not under the control of the navy.
The 2014 Russian military intervention in Ukraine prompted the president to order the governors from the oblasts to form volunteer units under the government's Territorial Defense Forces. These units were initially funded mainly through donations and had little funding from the regional budgets.
