Gender Aspects of Russian Aggression against Ukraine

Main Article Content

Abstract

Security-related academic studies are dominated by the stance of real politics that rarely, especially in Ukrainian historiography, considers the significance of gender transformations happening around the world, in every country, in relations between countries. The article essays to analyze Russian aggression against Ukraine from the gender perspective. On the one hand, highlighted are aspects of masculinization in today’s Russia on many levels – from civilizational to personal. Particular attention is given to the figure of Putin, who, in his domestic and foreign policy, embodies patriarchal gender ideology. An emphasis is given to the use of gender symbols in Russian propaganda, specifically in Russia’s opposition to the West and in its warfare with Ukraine that has firmly identified its civilizational choice. Whereas euro integration envisages correcting gender policies, underscored are changes taking place in our country in connection with challenges determined by the importance of modernization and by Moscow’s attempts to interfere with them.
