Governors of several subjects of the Russian Federation have been working on territorial defense, or self-defense since 2022. They explain this by the need to "be ready to defend their land" against threats from Ukraine and NATO. Currently, five regions have territorial defense forces: Belgorod, Kursk, Voronezh, Pskov, and Oryol. The authorities of the Belgorod region claimed that they had spent 400 million rubles (4,224,356) on local defense.
