Ukraine News: ++ Critique of gender stereotypes in the Ukrainian military ++

DBerlin security expert Julia Friedrich laments the traditional image of gender relations in the war in Ukraine. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his wife Olena Zelenska called themselves “on the side of a holy warrior and a beautiful soul,” Berlin’s Tagespiegel said. However, it is not representative of how the Ukrainian military operated prior to February 2022.

Before the Russian invasion, women held 23 percent of jobs in the military and 15.5 percent of the armed forces, said a security expert at the Berlin Global Public Policy Institute. Since the conflict began in 2014, a third of the fighters who have volunteered are women. Due to the general mobilization of men in February, the relationship has again changed somewhat. About ten percent of the armed forces today are women.

Friedrich said that Ukrainian soldiers can better cope with psychological stress after a combat mission than men. After returning from the front they must resume their traditional duties, “but there is no transition schedule in the Veterans Association.”

According to the defense expert, Ukrainian women are not allowed to hold all positions in the army until 2018 due to their “reproductive activity”. “It was still a Soviet tradition.” According to surveys, women who carry guns still often struggle to be accepted.
