June 12 — Internews-led and USAID-funded U-Media Project’s partner Institute of Gender Programs held a news conference to release the video documentary “Invisible Battalion,” which addresses issues and challenges female soldiers face in the Ukrainian Army as well as integration of females into peace and security policy in Ukraine.
The three documentary producers – Svitlana Lischynska, Alina Horlova, and Iryna Tsilyk – and the documentary subjects and Ukrainian soldiers – Andriana Susak and Olena Bilozerska – offered insight into the film at the event. The Institute of Gender Programs featured three trailers announcing six documentary stories under the common title “Invisible Battalion” about female participation in the military.
