A new controversy has stirred in the form of protest against Ukraine defence ministry’s weird decisions. Ukrainian authorities found themselves in limelight on Friday after official pictures showed women soldiers practicing for a parade in heels.
The Ukraine defence ministry released photographs of fatigue-clad women soldiers marching in mid-heel black pumps. A military parade next month to mark 30 years of independence following the Soviet Union’s breakup will be organized and the pictures are from the rehearsal of the same.
Accusations have been raised saying that women soldiers had been sexualised over the choice of footwear.
More than 31,000 women now serve in the Ukrainian armed forces, including more than 4,000 of whom are officers.
