Russian Women Sue National Guard: Not Allowed To Serve As Snipers

RT              Fri., Nov. 16, 2018

The demand for contract service with the National Guard among Russian women is so high that some rejected applicants even go to court after failing to get recruited as snipers or special forces troops.

20,000 females are currently serving under contract in the force, according to Major General Igor Virukhin, who oversees recruitment to the National Guard.

“The demand is very high,” he pointed out, adding that a recent court hearing in the southern city of Saratov was another proof to that.

“Eight women there sued Russia’s Defense Ministry and National Guard for not being allowed to serve as privates or Special Forces troops,” Virukhin said.

The officer explained that the ladies had dreamt of becoming snipers. However, the major general asserted that “it’s not a female position.”

Sniper activity isn’t included on the list of substitutable military professions that can be carried out by both men and women, such as communications officer, process engineer or cook, Virukhin said.

Female snipers made a major contribution to Russia’s victory in the Great Patriotic War (WWII) in 1941-45, becoming a true nightmare for the Nazis and eliminating thousands of invading troops.

Lyudmila Pavlichenkova is the most decorated of them all, killing 309 Nazis, including 39 enemy snipers, during the battle for the Black Sea port cities of Sevastopol and Odessa.

Last year, Russia’s Defense Ministry had resumed training female military pilots for the first time since the fall of Soviet Union in 1991, after receiving hundreds of letters from young women dreaming of a career in the sky.

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
