During the war Ukrainian women fought on the frontlines in battles with the men. The most famous sniper of the war was Major Ludmila Pavlychenko who was brought to Canada and the USA in 1942 for a visit because of her skill in shooting 309 German soldiers. Women in Ukraine also helped dig anti-tank traps and assisted in all aspects of the war. They suffered in the war as much as the men although Ukraine's population for over four decades after the war had a shortage of men due to the heavy losses of them in the war.
