United 24 is a charity set up by Volodymyr Zelenskyy President of Ukraine.
Trident Defense Initiative has been showcased both on United 24 and President Zelenskyy official Instagram page @zelenskiy_official.
It has been a great honor to be able to train Ukrainian soldiers and medics alike and we are forever humble for being recognized by the President.
Our Founder Daniel Ridley recently featured again on the Ukraine The Latest podcast with the Telegraph.
In this Episode Dan spoke about current NATO Training inside and outside of Ukraine and the current offensive.
Our Founder Daniel Ridley recently featured on the Ukraine The Latest podcast with the Telegraph.
Around the 30 minute mark he begins to speak about his history prior and in Ukraine including how Trident Defense was established and continues to train Ukrainian soldiers.
Joining our ranks is Civ Div, here he shows what TDI are doing and the invaluable work our instructors are doing.
Civ Div's Newest video, showing more of what we are doing, but also some exclusive interviews with some of our staff.
A great Video by GWARA media who came to visit both our Normal training establishment and also our Mobile Training Mission.
Trident Defense Initiative (TDI) was founded shortly after the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Our founder Dan, a former British soldier who joined the Ukrainian marines, found himself caught in Bucha and cut off from his unit in Mariupol.
After the siege of the Azovstal steelworks Dan could not re-establish contact with his unit and his contract with the Ukrainian military soon ended.
Not wanting to give up the fight, Dan decided to find a way to pass on his experience to train and prepare Ukrainian soldiers and civilians for warfare, with both medical and tactical training.
This vision became TRIDENT DEFENSE INITIATIVE.
We have already built a dedicated team of Ex-NATO instructors and highly skilled specialist civilians within Trident Defense Initiative, all of whom are rigorously vetted to ensure that we can offer comprehensive training that matches the skills and needs of our students.
We are the only organization in Ukraine willing and able to train alongside units at their forward training camps, working at the direct request of individual unit commanders.
This allows us to ensure that every unit we train is official and recognized by the Ukrainian government.
We have previously trained units of the Territorial Defense Force, National guards, Regular army, and SF units.
