Military registration for women: what does it mean and who will affect
Military registration for women extends to some professions, after which women will become liable for military service. The law applies to Ukrainian women aged 18 to 60 years.
“Women who have a specialty and / or profession related to the military registration specialty, and who are fit for military service due to their health and age, are registered in the military as conscripts,” the order says.
This means that women can be attracted to the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine or to defense work, but only in wartime. In peacetime, Ukrainian women can join the army as volunteers.
Employers of women of relevant specialties should check that the employee is on the military register. Failure to comply with the measure will be punishable by a fine. Also, registration documents will be checked when women are hired.
