Why is it important?

“The School of Military Divers” is a volunteer project that aims to support the uniformed diving special forces. We help divers by providing modern equipment and organize training of the physical skills of diving and special preparation for the mobility of the unit.

Currently, the project team is working with a group of special purpose Marine State Border Protection divers at the Azov Sea in Mariupol.

Last year we implemented the first stage of the project and began to train divers in the department “from scratch”, we purchased and transferred them more equipment worth more than a 100,000 UAH. The results exceeded our wildest expectations. The boys worked on their skills with pleasure and enthusiasm. This year we will continue training as the requirements for military divers are very high, so the guys need to constantly improve their skills and deepen their knowledge. In the second phase of the project, our main goal – is to help in training and equipping inspection teams from fighting patrols at sea and maintain military maritime infrastructure facilities to a good and safe condition.

The following video offers a look at the work in HD format.

As in the first phase of the course, divers train in the pool and in the open sea. Among other things, they will learn to hold their breath, working blindly, rescue people and search for explosives underwater.

Instructors of the project are diving specialists operating their business and athletic submariners. They developed and implemented the latest basic course diving training, which is based underwater sports – aquathon (underwater fighting). This is very serious training for the soldiers, because aquathon as a military sports discipline requires uncommon strength and extreme durability. Only hardened physically, brave and trained divers can successfully complete the task and return alive.

Why aquathon?

Aquathon is a sporting discipline, the essence of which is underwater duel between opponents holding their breath or using diving equipment. It fosters psychological resistance to extreme situations underwater, and general adaptation to conditions in different environment, swimming with equipment, using flippers, diving to depth and distance breath dynamics, and underwater combat. Some training exercises are performed blindly or with bound hands or feet.

Who are military divers?

the job of a military diver is difficult and responsible. Diving special forces are part of any and all security forces from frogman special operations forces to rescuers and have an extremely wide range of tasks, from anti-terrorism protection to underwater demining in the ATO zone. Without divers there is no rescue fleet, no combat swimmers or SWAT is difficult to imagine, even in the land forces divers are engineers, who check ponds in the ATO zone.

Unfortunately for the military diving field in Ukraine it is hard times. In Crimea, the country lost almost everything. The Naval Academy, State Aquarium, modern diving equipment – all remains in the clutches of the occupier. In Ukraine there is now almost no systematic training of military divers, the existing regulatory framework treats them as obsolete units and the provision of diving equipment and supplies occurs only sporadically. In addition, Ukraine has no educational institution in terms that would meet at least the standard of the Sevastopol Naval Academy – the Alma Mater of military divers. So often “tuning” of personnel to conduct the work of proper level units is often done with very limited resources. From everything – equipment, experienced teachers and a material base. And given the presence of water borders with the aggressor, the situation should be changed as soon as possible.

Where does the money go?

The budget of the second phase of the project includes the purchase cost of components for diving equipment and rental of a swimming pool in the city of Mariupol.

Maintenance and transportation for the team of instructors will be provided by the Mariupol State Border detachment. Training diving equipment, textbooks, literature, models of mine-explosive devices and other necessary materials in the educational process will be provided for free to the  instructional group.

Most suppliers of equipment purchased are abroad, so the values may vary slightly depending on the exchange rate. If the project faces any unforeseen additional costs or the list of needs changes this will be reflected in the project budget along with explanations.
