The Mission of Ukraine to NATO says almost 25,000 Ukrainian women are serving under contract in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, of whom only 3,000 are officers.

That was reported by Defense Express.

In total, over 55,000 women are serving and working in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Mission wrote on Facebook.

It is also reported the list of positions for female soldiers, sergeants and senior officers was expanded by 63 positions in 2016, for the first time in Ukrainian history. This brought Ukraine closer to NATO standards.
