Fake Ukrainian territorial center for recruitment and social support “strongly recruit female chemists and biologists”
Such a message was circulated on social networks, in particular on telegram channels broadcasting pro-Kremlin rhetoric. Reports say that an increased mobilization of women has begun in Ukraine, first of all, women with a chemical or biological education are mobilized. The authors of the messages refer to the “results of intelligence” of the occupier. At the same time, the authors note that Ukraine is preparing to use chemical and biological weapons. It's a lie.
The experts of the StopFake project got down to the case, they investigated that in Ukraine they do not plan to carry out mandatory mobilization of women or the mobilization of women of certain specialties. According to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov, as of the end of 2022, 59,786 women served in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, of who: about 19 thousand are civilian workers (in the field of medicine, office work, communications, finance and administration), and the rest are military personnel. Also, about 5 thousand women are directly involved in hostilities. That is, everything happens of its own accord and there is no question of any “forced mobilization”.
At the same time, analysts called the thesis about the use of chemical or biological weapons false. Experts have not found any evidence of the likely use of chemical or biological weapons.
In October 2022, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law on the voluntary procedure for taking women into military registration. According to the law, women who have received a medical or pharmaceutical specialty and are fit for age and health are subject to military registration. The rest can register voluntarily. Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine Hanna Maliar explained that there is no mobilization of women in the country. Until 2026, even Ukrainian women with a medical specialty do not have to be registered.
We recall that Detector Media previously also refuted fakes on the so-called mobilization of women. For example, the fake that women and children should allegedly prepare for mobilization.
