I'm lucky enough to know some very good fighters -- they make excellent refs!

This is one of those innocent comments that gets like, a page answer, oops.

These guys are deserters from the official Ukrainian military (we'll be seeing more of them) and they're special forces like Slava. While women had the same legal status in the USSR's military, in practice they were a small amount (after WWII ended, anyway). This, I'd imagine, went double for the special forces. So, it's not too surprising that this group of deserters to Bohdan is all-male.

As a side note, there were a good number of female grunts back there in the battle of Odessa -- that's just how insurgencies and civil wars roll.

Yup, I saw my answer some pages ahead.

(I remember all those war heroines in these countries, and I think there are more woman in military activities there than in any other place in the world.).

Given that how it seems like most deaths in most wars are civilians, it makes a certain amount of sense to join a group that automatically -- in theory anyway -- feeds you and issues you a gun...

It makes sense. The chances of surviving would higher in the military side (in theory.).
