According to the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, the “silver head of the Werewolf with golden eyes represents the governing, that is, the ‘main’ structure of the SOF. In its mouth, the wolf holds two arrows, symbolizing the enemy. One arrow is broken: it is a destroyed enemy. An intact arrow held in fangs means a neutralized enemy. That is, the head of the SOF decides which enemy to destroy and which – to neutralize. Arrows are a dangerous, lightning-speed threat that is being destroyed. According to legend, Cossacks with supernatural powers, who could turn into wolves, could catch arrows with their hands or beat them off.”
