A transgender journalist from the United States is now an official spokesperson of the Territorial Defense Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The Kyiv Post on Thursday tweeted that Sarah Ashton-Cirillo “has become one of the speakers for the Defense Forces,” and her work for Ukraine was soon praised in statements from Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense and Hanna Mailar, a Ukrainian deputy minister of defense. “Having been in Ukraine for almost 520 days, in a variety of both civilian and military capacities, more than anything I’ve come to appreciate the strength and resilience of the Ukrainian people,” Ashton-Cirillo told Newsweek in an email.
