Russia spreads fake about preparations for mass mobilization of women in Ukraine
On December 27, Ukraine's Defense Ministry approved the first bulletproof vest for female soldiers, and Russians began to spread the fake about mass mobilization of women on this basis
This is reported by the Center for Countering Disinformation.
"According to the Defense Ministry, almost 43,000 women volunteers serve in the Armed Forces. Due to the peculiarities of the female body, it was inconvenient for the servicewomen to handle weapons in the "male" version of the body armor, so the adapted version of the protection element has an armor plate curved outward, and its weight starts at 10.5 kg," the statement says.
As for the "mobilization of women," at a press conference on the results of 2023, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that he would not sign the relevant law.
"Mobilization of women? No, I won't sign it," the head of state assured.
