While soldiers train for the parade, the Department of Defense released photographs of female soldiers marching in black pumps in the middle of the heel. In the photos, the soldiers are seen marching in heels while under the close supervision of a commanding officer.

“Today, training takes place for the first time in heels,” Ivanna Medvid was quoted as saying by the Ministry of Defence’s information site ArmiaInform. “It’s a little harder than in army boots, but we’re trying.”

Shortly after the images went viral, people around the world and on social media slammed the Ukrainian authorities for sexualizing the female troops. Calling the movement ‘sexist and woman-free’, many users mocked the idea, accusing the Ministry of Defense of ignoring the health risks to women by letting them march in heels.

“It’s hard to imagine a more idiotic, harmful idea,” said Inna Sovsun, a Golos party member, pointing to health risks. She added that Ukraine’s female soldiers, like men, risk their lives and “do not deserve to be mocked”.

Ukraine’s defense minister is now under pressure from government members over the decision to allow female military cadets to wear pumps with heels in an important parade.

“The purpose of any military parade is to demonstrate the military capability of the army. There should be no room for stereotypes and sexism, ”said a joint statement from three cabinet members, including Veterans Minister Yulia Laputina.

More than 31,000 women are now serving in the Ukrainian Armed Forces, of which more than 4,000 are officers.
