Gender Equality

The Service ensures equal career opportunities to all employees. We believe that career growth is dependent on professional qualities rather than gender.

Women comprise one third of the SSU team. Over 300 women occupy senior positions in the rank of Colonel.

In October 2018, a female SSU officer was ranked General for the first time in Ukraine. Our colleague, the Chief of the Military Medical Department, became Ma-jor-General of Medical Service.

In March 2020, Yuliia Laputina, Deputy Chief of the Department of Counterin-telligence Protection of State Interests in Informational Security Sphere, was pro-moted to the rank of Major-General.
