Ukraine will reduce the list of professions whose woman representatives must be registered in the military in Ukraine, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence Oleksandr Zavitnevych reports.

According to him, the list currently includes professions that will not be needed by the Armed Forces, so this list "will be reviewed in the direction of reduction and common sense."

"In the law, we have made a framework that this list is determined by the Ministry of Defense. But it so happened that this list was adjusted and when it came out, we saw that the list is very large. We discussed this issue with Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov and agreed that the list will be revised downwards and towards common sense, because there are professions that are really not needed by the Armed Forces and other military formations," Zavitnevych said.

He added that a law was passed in the spring, which stipulates that women who have a specialty and (or) profession related to the relevant military accounting specialty, defined in the list approved by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, and are fit for military service and age, are taken into military registration of conscripts.

"Such a rule existed before, but the list was determined by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, but the Cabinet of Ministers is a large collegial body, and sometimes decisions need to be made today," the official said.

As it was reported, a decree came into force in Ukraine on December 17, according to which women of most common professions will now be obliged to register for military service.

Such obligations apply to women whose profession is included in the extended list, as well as if they are suitable for military service due to health and age (from 18 to 60 years).

The list of specialties and/or professions related to the relevant military accounting specialties, after which women are registered in the military, can be read HERE.
