Earlier, Ukrainian Member of Parliament Kira Rudik shared a photograph of herself holding a firearm. "I learn to use Kalashnikov and prepare to bear arms. It sounds surreal, as just a few days ago it would never come to my mind. Our #women will protect our soil the same way as our #men," Kira Rudik wrote on Twitter.

Even Ukraine's President, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, is claimed to be involved in the war, fighting alongside Ukrainian forces.
