MADRID, 28 (.)

The Ukrainian authorities have stressed that there are already more than 50,000 women in the country participating in the war against Russia. “I am proud that a third of our Army is made up of strong and courageous women,” said Parliament Deputy Speaker Olena Kondratyuk.

“More than 50,000 Ukrainian women in the ranks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces are fighting today for peace and security throughout Europe,” Kondratyuk celebrated, during her speech at the VI Ukrainian Women’s Congress.

Kondratyuk has asserted that this reality is one of the highest indicators among all the armies of the NATO countries. “This means that women can build, develop, teach, have a successful career, raise children and, if necessary, protect their families and their state,” she said.

“This is a new reality,” said Kondratyuk, who has defended that these “new opportunities” for women not only “should be recognized” but also “should not be underestimated,” reports the Ukrinform agency.

For his part, the Ukrainian Defense Minister, Oleksi Reznikov, has specified that there are 59,786 women who are participating “directly” in this war, in which 101 of them have already died and another 50 are missing.

“Fifty women have already received state awards, they have the title of Heroes of Ukraine, unfortunately, posthumously,” said the minister, who also detailed that all these women present in the Armed Forces, there are 41,000 who are soldiers who perform on the battlefield.
