    CANCELLED: The Invisible Battalion. Movie Screening.

    A female account of military actions in Ukraine. CBEES invites everyone to the screening and discussion with the author of the project Maria Berlinska (via Skype) and Olena Sharhovska (in person) from the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory.

    Unfortunately, this seminar is cancelled.

    The Invisible Battalion is a full-length documentary based on the stories of six women who were (or are) combatants at war in the East of Ukraine.

    This documentary is a female account of war in Ukraine and came as a result of a sociological survey on women's participation in the war in the East of Ukraine. The survey revealed a number of problems that women faced at army. Ukrainian legislation didn’t allow women to be assigned to combat positions, so they were enlisted as cooks, seamstresses, cleaners, accountants etc. while taking part in military combat operations as
    snipers, grenade launcher operators, reconnaissance soldiers, etc.

    Thus, the majority of women who served in the war in Donbass were not enlisted officially and subsequently had no access to social or military benefits, military awards, social status, or career opportunities in the Armed Forces. Later the Invisible Battalion survey turned into a photo and film project. During 2018 this film was
    presented at various international festivals and human rights events.

    CBEES invites everyone to the screening and discussion with the author of the project Maria Berlinska (via Skype) and Olena Sharhovska (in person) from the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory.
