Now women can serve in the army on an equal footing with men.
In Ukraine came into force law No. 2523-VIII, which provides equal opportunities to men and women to conclude a contract for military service, equal access to military ranks, positions, an equal amount of responsibility during the service.
In addition, the law allows you to appoint women in a daily outfit, but with observance of the legislation on the protection of motherhood and childhood. Earlier, women were forbidden to assign daily outfits.
The new law abolishes restrictions on women in the military reserve, and military training from now to not dismiss all the women in the military, but only pregnant women.
Another novelty is the abolition of age limit of service for women from 18 to 40 years as on call and on contract.
Note, 12 October the law was signed by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, and on 6 September it was approved by the Verkhovna Rada.
