Ukrainian women are tough and are ready to stand up to the Russian invaders.
Yesterday, the news was running with story of an older Ukrainian woman giving sunflower seeds to a Russian soldier. As the story goes, she told him to take the seeds and put them in his pocket so that flowers would grow after he died on Ukrainian soil.
That is one brave woman.
So, too, is Kira Rudik who is a member of the Ukrainian Parliament. She tweeted out a picture of herself with her Krinkov (short-barreled AK) that she is ready, willing, and able to use.
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. Go #Ukraine! 🇺🇦 pic.twitter.com/UbF4JRGlcy— Kira Rudik (@kiraincongress) February 25, 2022
If anyone is still unsure why the right to keep and bear arms is important, they need only look at Ukraine. Their parliament changed their gun control laws on Wednesday to allow citizens to carry firearms outside the home for the purpose of self-defense. I guess a little late is better than not at all.
