The process of forming the «Sirozhupan» division took place against the backdrop of a huge moral upsurge of captive Ukrainian soldiers in the Freistadt camp, the desire to join the armed defense of the UNR from the Bolshevik invasion became the main basis for the creation of the military formation. Thanks to the effective operation of the «Battle Executive» it became possible to form multiple volunteer teams (battalions), the final military rally which took place already at the Volodymyr-Volynsky camp. As a result of Austrian officers' efforts, the process of creating the division was generally quite successful, why served «withdrawal» about 1/5 of the deserters. Therefore, despite the complexity of the formation of the division, her staff was ready to speak immediately on behalf of Ukraine, and the division itself became an important part of the process of building the Ukrainian national army of the modern age.
