Shoulder patch insignia

The MDI is an Agency of the Ministry of Defence. "The main purpose of the institution is acquisition and analysis information about the military potential of other countries andthreats of a military nature." (source, Ukrainian)
Its current full name is The Main Directorate (Department) of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine (Ukrainian: Головне управління розвідки Міністерства оборони України, ГУР МО), abbreviated as HUR MO or GUR MO.

In February 1992, the formation of the Intelligence Department (Directorate) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine) started, formally established by a Decree of the President of Ukraine regarding the formation of the Office of Military Strategic Intelligence Ministry of Defense of Ukraine (source). This meant that the intelligence organization and activities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were controlled by two separate authorities. It was clear that two agencies with different levels of reporting to the Minister of Defence and the Chief of the General Headquarters were practically unable to make coordinated decisions concerning the organization and management principles for various intelligence units, control over their activities, definition and amount of their responsibilities etc., without duplicating each other.
This posed major obstacles on the way to creation of a modern, effective defence intelligence system. Therefore, the leadership of both agencies made their suggestions on the establishment of a unified central defence intelligence authority.
Then by a Decree of the President of Ukraine dated July 6, 1993 regarding the formation of the Main Directorate (Department) of Military (Strategic) Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine on the basis of the Intelligence Directorate (Department) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Board of Military Strategic Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine the two Intelligence organizations, the Department of Military Strategic Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense and the Intelligence Department (Directorate) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine) were set to merge.
Then by a Decree of the President the organization was renamed. Then on March 22, 2001 the Verkhovna Rada (Parliament) of Ukraine ratified the Law "On Intelligence Agencies of Ukraine" with the GUR MO(D) of Ukraine being granted the status of a special government authority. (source, source)

The emblem is described as follows (original in Ukrainian): "The emblem of the Main Directorate main dire of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine is a round shield of black color with a gold rim, on the background of which is a straight equilateral cross with diverging sides of crimson color, in the center of which there is an image of the Sign of the Princely State of Volodymyr the Great in a round blue medallion. The medallion is superimposed on the image of a four-pointed star surmounted by the image of a 'scout' lily and two crossed swords with the point up, placed between the sides of the cross. The ribbons of the cross, the image of a star and swords are golden." This was issued by the Decree of the President of Ukraine dated June 20, 2006. No. 551/2006 On the symbols used in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The shoulder patch insignia was introduced in 2016 and features an owl with the inscription on top "Military Intelligence of Ukraine" (воєнної розвідки України), and on bottom "Sapiens dominabitur astris" (English: The wise will rule over the stars) crossing the whole russian territory depicted as a black map. It is important to highlight that the bat is used on both: Russian Spetsnaz GRU (formally known as Special Forces of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces) as well as paramilitary forces emblems' (i.e. RSB Group), with bats being known to be prey to owls, something that at the time enraged Russian authorities.

The special unit "Kraken" is a separate reconnaissance and subversive unit of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
It was formed in March 2022 in Kharkiv by mostly veterans of the Azov Brigade, as well as Officers of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, ultras and volunteers, and has the size of a regiment.

The flag is a horizontal black background with a red thick stripe in the middle featuring the logo (the logo is the kraken, a legendary sea monster) (picture, source / reverse, source).
[Kraken is also the German word for octopus.]

Note that upon kraken's head, there is a Tiwaz rune. Although it is yet to be discovered whether it is really explained as such, or just as an arrow (Considering that the kraken has its place in the Trumpist symbolism, as well as the shape of the arrow-like symbol, the first option seems more likely. Regardless of that, it is probably just a matter of time when this will be presented as a proof of Ukrainian neo-Nazism by Russian propaganda).

National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine

The National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, NSDC (Ukrainian: Рада національної безпеки і оборони України) was established as the Defense Council of Ukraine (Радa оборони України) by the resolution of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine dated October 11, 1991 No. 1658-XII. The Defense Council was defined as the highest state body of collegiate governing on matters of defense and security of Ukraine. The Council was originally created under temporary provision on July 3, 1992 as the National Security Council. On August 23, 1994 the President of Ukraine adopted a new provision for the Council. After the adoption of the Constitution of Ukraine on June 28, 1996, the provisions of the council (National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine) were outlined in Article 107. Thus the National Security Council of Ukraine (Радa національної безпеки України) was merged with the already existing Defense Council of Ukraine (Радa оборони України) and was adapted by the Decree of the President of Ukraine dated August 30, 1996 No. 772.
