The transformation of the Ukrainian Special Forces units since the beginning of the so-called civil war has been stunning. They went from an eastern European obscurity to a near cookie cutter replica of U.S. and Western special ops units in both their operating procedures and equipment. Even their training resembles that of the West for the simple fact that they are trained by the West.
Even though Russia may have stolen a significant part of Ukraine, the conflict in this regard has made the nation stronger.
