Since its first days, Euromaidan was guarded by Self-Defence, the volunteers who took turns to maintain order and security. Today, most of them serve in the National Guard of Ukraine, and the rest have created self-defence crews in cities and towns all over Ukraine to maintain public order.

Odesa Self-Defence brought to light the smuggling of fuel via the sea port to the separatists in the occupied territories of Donbas. One of the founders of Self-Defence, Andriy Levus, went all the way from a community activist to a member of parliament and continues the work of the organisation on the national level.
