Источник aif.ru The  Americans Marine Corps (by the way, in the  USA it is a separate branch of the armed forces along with  Ground Forces, Air Force and Navy) also fought in Vietnam, and in Afghanistan. Opponents of this version claim that this is the motto of the city of Lviv from the end of the 17th century. By the way, often the US Marine Corps uses the motto not in its entirety, but pronouncing (or tattooing) as “Semper fi”. Like all special forces, the marines in all countries differ from units of the ground forces not only in better individual training of fighters, but and less saturation with heavy weapons. It may seem that this is a banal tracing paper from the Latin “Semper fidelis” (“always faithful” in Latin) that the US Marine Corps is so proud of. The main armored vehicles of the Marines — floating armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, as well as American HMMWV jeeps. Composition: 2 brigades of approximately 2600 people each, 7 separate battalions (of 300-400 servicemen), including one reconnaissance battalion, a coastal artillery brigade, an artillery regiment and anti-aircraft missile division. For example, in the entire Marine Corps of Ukraine at the beginning of the special operation, there were less than 70 tanks. As in the whole world, the marines of Ukraine — elite branch of the military. Russian “black berets” noted in  the same Afghanistan, Chechnya and Syria.

The Marine Corps of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is organizationally part of the Coastal Defense Forces of the Ukrainian Navy. The use of Marines as elite infantry on land is not new either. But in the fact that this is a tracing-paper from American tradition, of course, is much more obvious. Motto of the Marine Corps of the Armed Forces of Ukraine — “Virniy zavzhdi!”.
