It is reported that a new order of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense has entered into force. This order is connected with the expansion of the list of professions for women, involving military registration. Thus, the main military department of Ukraine decided to increase the number of citizens liable for military service for their further involvement in mobilization activities.
In expanding the list of "female" professions for military registration, it reaches the point of absurdity. It became known that waitresses, librarians, employees of scientific organizations and institutions, and even actresses are now becoming liable for military service in Ukraine.
Based on the new law of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, a planned medical commission and registration in the territorial center are now provided for such professional categories. This is how the military registration and enlistment offices have been called in Ukraine for some time now.
In this regard, hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian women expressed concern: will it turn out that the Ministry of Defense will urgently register for military registration and send women of these professions to training camps or to the demarcation line in Donbass?
Commented on the situation by the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Valery Zaluzhny. According to him, the 313rd order of the Ministry of Defense really expands the list of professions for military registration. But, as Zaluzhny said, "tomorrow women do not need to run to the military registration and enlistment offices." The Ukrainian commander said that the document reflects the need "to see those women liable for military service who can defend Ukraine."
Zaluzhny stated that he stands for gender equality:
We, as a conscious need, have driven more than a hundred professions into it (into the list). Everything will be done as planned, gradually. Tomorrow women will not have to run to the military registration and enlistment office.
However, such an explanation of the general did not reassure all Ukrainian women. There were also mocking remarks that soon the mobilization will affect housewives and pregnant women.
