Russia’s Defender of the Fatherland Day is marked every February 23. In addition to honoring veterans, this holiday is also considered the men’s counterpart to March 8, International Women’s Day. Nevertheless, Defender of the Fatherland Day is not just for men. This holiday honors all those who ever have or who ever will stand up for their country’s security.  About 40,000 women serve in the Russian armed forces.
