On the eve of the International Women’s Day, President Petro Poroshenko met with military women and volunteers, representatives of art and culture, prominent doctors, teachers and scientists.

The Head of State thanked women who defend Ukraine and help men on the frontline for their patriotism, courage and resoluteness in the defense of Ukraine.

“With such women, our best troops in the world are invincible. With such women, I have no doubt, victory over the enemy, aggressor and invader is definitely inescapable,” Petro Poroshenko said.

According to the President, about 54 thousand women, 20 thousand of them military, serve in the Armed Forces. “Discipline, efficiency and responsibility are definitely higher in the units with women. Men behave and fight differently there. That is why your role is very important in the protection of the Homeland,” Petro Poroshenko said.
