War Brings Ukraine’s Women New Roles and New Dangers

From a New York Time story by Megan Specia and Emile Ducke headlined “War Brings Ukraine’s Women New Roles and New Dangers”:

At the head of the class was a woman named Hanna, along with a board showing images of unexploded munitions and landmines. She explained to the class the risks of minefields and how they are marked. One woman attending the day’s training asked if it was safe to take her 3-year-old son to a local park.
