Ukrainian women : The news of the registration of women in Ukraine literally shook the Ukrainian society. Someone once again doubted the adequacy of the government (although it would seem that there is no doubt about it?). The majority of Ukrainians, as far as can be judged by social networks and even Ukrainian news releases, did not appreciate the initiative of the authorities.
Registration of women was established in accordance with the order of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, which entered into force on December 17. After some time, a petition was created on the Web for the abolition of this order. She has already gained over 25 thousand votes, so the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky will have to consider her.
In the meantime, residents of Ukraine are actively expressing their attitude on social networks. Due to the restrictions of Roskomnadzor, most of the comments are not subject to publication in the open press. Ukrainian women and Ukrainians did not regret obscene epithets addressed to the authors of the document.
For example, a user with the nickname oksanakrot2 on Tiktok reacted violently to the military initiative: “There is no one with whom to give birth and raise children! Ukraine is dying out! You … are thinking with your own head, and you are sending women ?! “
A 55-year-old woman under the nickname user796868252537 burst into an angry comment: “… go and protect their wives and children with your body? Are they there ..? “.
A user with the nickname “Izya Patrenko” ironically asks the authors of the initiative: “What psychotropic drugs did you take? In what psychiatric dispensary are you registered? “
The user under the nickname Yuri Karabchuk is trying to reason more or less within a reasonable framework: “There are military specialties and departments in universities, there is a contract service — that’s enough. If personnel holes form, they can be filled by those men who are fit for non-combatant in wartime. What can be the military registration of all women? Are you completely crazy up there, upstairs? “
Some, however, with a serious look are taking apart the order of the Ministry of Defense. So, the registration of women office workers does not bother some, but they do not understand why they should register accountants.
Plus, outrage is caused by a fine for failure to appear at the military registration and enlistment office: “Whether you join the army or not, the state will earn extra money for you,” summarizes the Tiktok user slaventsia.
Among the Ukrainian women interviewed by the News One TV channel, many hope that “we have enough men” and say that serving in the army is a man’s job.
The adviser to the head of the President’s Office Aleksey Arestovich, apparently not understanding the essence of what was happening, said on the air of the Vartovi Espreso Youtube channel that this was the implementation of the principle of “gender equality”.
Svetlana Lyubchenko, indignant at such a statement by the official, wrote sarcastically: “Excellent equality! Women in Ukraine still earn less; they still have the bulk of housework and children on their shoulders. Only in words is this equality! “
Ukrainian Evgenia Ivanovna also sarcastically expressed about what had happened: “The results of the vote of the Verkhovna Rada – 0 people against, thank you, dear deputies! It is strange that there are no children and old people on the list (for military registration. – “MK”) … who are waiting for a solution to the problem of the demographic crisis. We wish you great health and happiness! I wonder where we will put the orphans afterwards, the boarding schools wanted to close it … ”.
And, oddly enough, this proposal was supported by the Ukrainian analyst Alexander Kochetkov. He considered it expedient to put even children on the military register, since “during mass shooting, the theory of probability will work, and the bullets with shells will find their target.”
