Women Soldiers in the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The Armed Forces of Ukraine (Збройні сили України [ЗСУ]; Zbroini syly Ukrainy, [ZSU]) are the fighting forces that protect and defend the sovereign state of Ukraine. Here you see Ukrainian women soldiers marching in the Kyiv Independence Day Parade on August 24, 2018. They include a battalion of 120 female military cadets from the Taras Shevchenko National University Military Institute and the Military Institute of Telecommunications and Information Technologies.

Their appearance in the Kyiv Independence Day Parade that day was greeted with thunderous applause by the people of the capital city as they marched along Khreshchatyk Street (Вулиця Хрещатик), the main street of the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv. All military and security forces, including the Armed Forces, are under the command of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and are subject to oversight by a permanent Verkhovna Rada parliamentary commission.

Defense Ministry Order No. 292 of June 3, 2016 permitted women to serve in combat units of the Ukrainian armed forces. As of October 2016, about 10,000 Ukrainian women served in combat units. According to Defense Ministry figures, in June 2016, some 49,500 women served in the Ukrainian armed forces, including 2,000 officers. Women are eligible to be drafted into the military as officers. In 2020, 58,000 women served in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Before the order for women’s integration into the armed forces, women served in the volunteer Territorial defense battalions. In 2009, about 18,000 women (about 13% of the armed forces) served in the forces that protect and defend Ukraine. Nadiya Savchenko is one of the most well known female Ukrainian soldiers. She was held as a prisoner in Russia from July 2014 to May 2016.

In September 2018, legislation was passed to make women and men equal in the military and law enforcement agencies. Since 2019, both male and female cadets are accepted into the military preparatory school, the Ivan Bohun Military High School. In October 2018, Liudmyla Shugaley became Ukraine’s first female general. She was appointed head of the Military Medical Directorate of the Security Service of Ukraine.

August 21, 2018 – Впервые в истории независимой Украины участие в параде ко Дню независимости примут женщины-военнослужащие. 120 курсанток военного института Киевского национального университета пройдут по Крещатику рядом с мужчинами. Девушки вспоминают: во время первых тренировок были даже слезы и сейчас с нетерпением ждут, когда 24 августа выйдет батальоном на шествие.

March 8, 2022 – As the war in Ukraine rages on, more and more residents are being recruited to fight on the front lines. Under martial law, men of fighting age are forbidden from leaving their country. It means many families have been forced apart and women are left with a touch choice – flee with their family or stay and fight. We meet the women at war who are giving up everything for their country. Europe correspondent Isabella Higgins reports from Lviv.

April 14, 2022 – A forgotten conflict has been tearing apart eastern Ukraine since 2014.

Now women represent nearly a quarter of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, but their involvement in the conflict is not always accepted. Ukrainian sniper Yulia left her children behind to join the war on the country’s icy fringes. “When our soldiers started dying, we couldn’t just stand by. If you don’t want to bury your own, then you need to bury others”, she says.

However, not all of her male comrades agree with her presence on the frontline. “For us, it’s strange to see women involved in war. I understand feminism, equality and all that, but war isn’t women’s business”, says her male commander Vasily, speaking from a bunker near enemy lines.

Her involvement has also taken a toll on her relationship with her daughter. “She understands, but at the same time it hurts her because for the last four – almost five years I haven’t been with them”, says Yulia. Olga used to work at Donetsk International Airport, which was destroyed in the conflict.

She now lives a stone’s throw from the demarcation line. “We’re scared to stay here, but we have no choice”, she says, “we’re hostages here.” Whether taking up arms or raising a family, these women soldiers all share a common objective: to get back to normal life.

Young Ukrainian Women . . . their nation’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) experts

August 28, 2022 – Ukrainian men cannot leave their country. By order of their national government, all Ukrainian men are ordered to remain in Ukraine to serve in the Ukrainian Armed Forces or in some other authorized national service. This means that young Ukrainian Women are volunteering to become the backbone of their nation’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) experts. Really.

The classrooms of these Ukrainian women are the battlefields of Kosovo . . . dangerous deathtraps littered with thousands of unexploded devices from one of the world’s most lethal wars (February 1998 – June 1999) in world history. There in Kosovo, these young Ukrainian women learn the delicate art and science of clearing unexploded bombs, grenades, mines, missiles, warheads, and an infinite variety of other dangerous explosive devices.

While Russia’s “special military operation” (Russia’s war of invasion) rages on in Ukraine, these young Ukrainian women return to their country to protect and defend their homeland. Their mission – their responsibility – is to “demine” – to clear millions of Russian and Ukrainian explosive devices littering the battlefields of their own country to protect and defend the people of Ukraine. No pressure, just another day on the job. Who would you trust the most to protect your children?

April 28, 2022 – According to Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense, female soldiers and officers make up about 15% of Ukrainian army combat forces. Since 2014, more than 30,000 Ukrainian women have become combat veterans. Those numbers have shot up since the Russian invasion. Mariia Prus has the story.

September 9, 2022 – Combat doctors, tankers, gunners, snipers, deep sea diving instructors . . .

– Why have they chosen to take up arms, to fight for their homeland?
“A modern army is a place for professionals. It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman. Only those who know how to do their job well should be here.

“We used to fight (measure our strength) in numbers of humans. Now (we) need to learn to fight skillfully. I will serve in the army because I know how to fight better than others.”

– a young woman Ukrainian soldier

“From the first seconds of the full-scale invasion, when (the Russians) try to destroy our country, the war is no longer the woman’s or the man’s business. It is the business of the citizens of this country. That’s why everyone who is strong enough, and has the ability, should protect it. All others should train and be ready to replace wounded or dead soldiers from the frontline.”

– Iryna Tsyrbukh, paramedic in the Hospitallers Volunteer Organization

“The situation is difficult. The orcs are pushing forward. We give them a decent rebuff. We lack artillery. We compensate for technical shortcomings with our professional qualities. Our morale is high. It’s even disturbing for the guys and girls to take days off, as they are worried that some real movement will start without them, and they won’t participate. We will definitely gain (win). Slava Ukraine. Слава Україні! (Slava Ukraini!) Glory to Ukraine!”

– Khrystyna Kudryova, Senior Lieutenant of the National Guard of Ukraine

Evgeniya Emerald is considered the most successful female soldier in the Ukrainian army. A very good sniper, Emerald managed to hit five targets with five bullets!

Let’s get to know Emerald a little more before we tell you the details of this event! Ever since she was a child, Emerald was different from her friends. While her peers played with dolls, she played with toy guns. She climbed trees and ran very fast. She had an athletic body. This attracted the attention of his father. He wanted a boy very much. So he raised Emerald like a boy. He wanted her to always be a fighter. When Emerald was nine years old, she went hunting with her father. He gave her a gun. Emerald was like a pro when she held the very heavy shotgun. She started shooting at the targets her father pointed out. Emerald was so accurate that his father was amazed. Today, 23 years later, Emerald is recognized as the most successful sniper in the Ukrainian army!

March 17, 2023 – Ukrainian hero destroyed a group of Russian intelligence officers. In many cases, it is only when one faces a critical situation that one becomes aware of one’s true calling.
