Abstract

This article examines the formation of the volunteer movement in Ukraine's security policy during military operations. It aims to identify historical peculiarities and changes in the context of military operations. The study utilizes the historical method to analyze socio-historical sources and materials, tracing the genesis and development of the volunteer movement. The comparative method is employed to explore different approaches to understanding volunteering in Ukraine. Systematization is used to analyze patterns in the development of the volunteer movement within the security policy of the state during military operations. The article highlights the lack of comprehensive research on the role of the volunteer movement in Ukraine's security policy. It emphasizes the significant role of the volunteer movement in shaping international relations and modern security policies. The study identifies specific characteristics of the volunteer movement within the context of military operations. Overall, the research suggests that studying the volunteer movement contributes to understanding population self-organization and the formation of civil society in the state.
