Commentary

While  women tend to enjoy the same status and rights as men, the territorial  dispute in Ukraine appears to be worsening, with an estimated 10,090 people  estimated to have been killed, creating a space of physical insecuriy. Recent  news have reported that 'France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine have agreed on  measures to enforce a 2015 peace deal in Ukraine amid heightened conflict in  the country's east." (Global Conflict Tracker).

Civil Society

Promoting  women initiative groups. Other than this, little is mentioned. Although NGOs  are supporting the implementation of the plan.

Women in Peacekeeping

Increasing  number of women who participate in international peacekeeping operations; in  monitoring missions and managerial positions as well as higher representation  in security sector.  Does not mention active recruitment of women; however, recent accounts  demonstrate women being allowed in combat as well as the Ukrainian army.
